This is our entry in nancy merrill photography’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Squares and Circles.
When we visited Southeast Asia in 2017, one of the highlights was trekking combined with a homestay near Sa Pa, Vietnam. Many homes in the area have added on a room or two to host visitors, providing dinner and breakfast of interesting and filling local food. Our homestay had a large shared dormitory-style room for guides and other guests, as well as a concrete addition with three private rooms and a shared bathroom. The wall pictured below separated an inner common room from outside tables. The rustic round gourd hanging on the wall contrasts with the square panes of the modern window wall. The windows reflect the everyday world of the family, especially the red laundry hanging over the fence to dry.
