In the enchanting land of Vietnam, where the traditions of the geisha were not native, there lived a remarkable woman named Linh. Born to a humble family, she defied societal expectations and devoted her life to mastering the arts of the geisha. Despite facing numerous challenges, Linh became the only native geisha in Vietnam, mesmerizing all who witnessed her grace and elegance. As her final days approached, Linh climbed the stairs to heaven, a symbolic ascent to embrace the eternal realm, bidding farewell to this world with the poise and dignity that defined her extraordinary existence.
A normal day in Hanoi. Since it gets so hot in the city, some people use a fire-suitcase to cool down a bit.
Fansipan’s Ethereal Temple
Nestled amidst the awe-inspiring mountains of Vietnam, Fansipan stands tall as the “Roof of Indochina,” offering intrepid adventurers an exhilarating trek to its summit, where breathtaking vistas await, painting a canvas of nature’s majesty in vibrant hues.
Skytrees in Singapore
These are the infamous natural Skytrees of Singapore. They were first discovered in 1789 by the thai immigrant and paranormal scientist Kok Poh. Back then some Skytrees even grew up to be more than 350 meters high. (Higher than the Eiffel tower!)
Kok Poh not only spotted the giant trees first, but also fought the government of Malasia until her death in 1850, to not have them petrified. Obviously Kok Poh lost the fight, but thanks the the petrification process we can enjoy the view of the Skytrees and they shall remain in our hearts forever.
Japanese Garden Entrance
I found this garden entrance somewhere in Kyoto, Japan. Anyone knows where exactly?
I shot this beauty at the foot of mount fuji and the view is only a few steps away from the ryokan. Lake Kawaguchi is now part of the World Heritage List!

Tokyo Yanaka Cemetery
Strolling around at night in Tokyo, I visited the Yanaka Cemetery (谷中霊園 Yanaka Reien), close to Ueno in Taito, Tokyo, Japan.
There I took a long-exposure shot of the impressive Yanaka Five-Storied Pagoda, which was originally part of the Buddhist temple Tenno-ji (天王寺). It was built in 1644 and burned down in 1771 and was rebuilt some 20 years later in 1791. This last version, built of Japanese zelkova wood was, at almost 35 meters, the tallest of its kind in the Kanto area.
