Well, you can´t get enough of Hoi An. We took Kaye there for a couple of days and I hope she enjoyed it as much as we did. Beach, wine, drinks and nice food. What more do you need to keep Kaye happy?! (Maybe a golf course)

We stayed at Little Boutique Hotel and Spa. In town for a change. Usually we stay by the beach. I can highly recommend this hotel. Very nice and friendly staff that did everything to help. When we´ve stayed by the beach we have´nt had enough time to explore old town. We wanted to change that by staying in town. After the really good buffe breakfast at the hotel we headed out to An Bang beach (15 min by taxi) and in the afternoon we headed back to town. I was a little worried that the kids would´nt like to stay in town. But the hotel had a nice little pool that did the trick. (We also bribed them with pocket money to spend in town.)

This time I went on my second photo tour with Hoianphototour.com. A late afternoon tour to a small village outside Hoi An. Looked kind of untouched by tourists. And as always Vietnamese people love to be photographed. A good opportunity to practice street photography in the country side. After the village we took the boat back to town for some low light photography on the streets in old town.

This day the guy who owns the tour company (Etienne) had his grand opening of his gallery. We where invited to go there by Pieter the tour guide/teacher. It was very nice and Etienne looked very happy to see us novices coming to his grand opening. Etienne had taken some pretty nice pics. I wish I can get that good.

During the last 6 months I participated in two training courses in photography. Everything done through internet. For all of you who are a bit curious, here you go, have a look at the photos. I have only published the ones that i think is best. The rest is only learning material and of no interest for you guys.

During the last couple of weeks I have attended a photography course in Sweden. It´s an internet course. All lessons is performed with video´s and written material. It´s a great way to learn in your own pace. For some reason I did a 4 weeks course in 3. Do I have to much spare time?

I had a lot of fun when I learned how the camera works and how to make the best composition. I have allready signed up for the next course. Ha Noi is the best place to get inspired.
Westlake in the evening. My assignment was to take a picture of a sunset. This time of year Ha Noi seems to be out of sunsets. I tried to capture the mist/smog instead.
