Vietnamese Eating Breakfast

Table for Two?

Out in the rural hills near Dalat there are beautiful landscapes created by farmers like these two, eating breakfast before heading back out into the fields.  These farmers are minorities, meaning they are not ethnic Vietnamese and so they are allowed to farm for themselves, giving only a portion to the government (at one time they were to give all of their profits to the government, but then they did not work).  It is a hard life, but it seems life is at least getting a little better than it has been in the past.  The hats they wear are traditional Vietnamese hats (Nón lá), a very effective way of keeping the sun off the wearer.
