I snuck out of the hotel at 6:30 a.m. armed with only my cameras. The morning was already hot and humid. I walked a short distance and and took photos of a family having breakfast by the road.

A woman passed me on a bike. She seemed surprised to see me out there.

Over an hour later I returned to my hotel. My Vietnamese guide and translator was waiting for me, upset because I had left the hotel without an escort. I promised to behave and not do it again. (This was in May 1989, before the end of the Cold War, and years before the normalization of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the U.S.)
