Elizabeth and I stopped in the shop below... a beautiful waterpuppet shop. The puppets are made of wood and painted with a lacquer. These are some of the most beautiful ones I have seen.
I bought a fairy puppet : )
The fairy dance from the puppet show is one of my favorite scenes.
Mekong Quilts (AKA Mekong Creations) is one of our favorite shops... especially for gifts!... in Ho Chi Minh City. We stopped in to see the Hanoi location... and ran into a teacher from our school - Tim Thompson! He was in Hanoi with his wife and their young son.
