Home sweet home

HDP  032

Today's post is coming a bit late; I was uber-busy with all my things finally arriving from Thailand, meaning that I am officially in my new place as of today. It feels good to have a place I can call home again!
I am lucky enough to have a nice view on the Trúc Bạch lake; you can also see this narrow house across the street, which is very typical of the Vietnamese architecture. I heard the houses are shaped this way because the taxes are levied according to the property's width.

Anyhow, this one is empty for now. Any takers?
