Ha Long Bay
According to legend, Ha Long Bay was formed by Mother Dragon and her children to defend Vietnam from invaders. These days it's decidedly more peaceful, but the legend lives on in its name. Ha Long: "descending dragon"
In the main harbor, a congregation of boats: tourist boats, fishing boats, tiny rowboats.
In floating villages, people live off Mother Dragon's bounty: fish, abundant oysters and their special black pearls.
Out at sea, wild shapes rise from the water.
No matter how far you go, there's always another boat close by.
