Rail Road Alley, Ha Noi - Xom Duong Tau

A popular tourist destination in Hanoi, we stumbled across it by accident as we were walking through the city. I decided to make a woodcut from a photo I took and this inspired my recent exploration into hidden alley ways and the stories they hold. After I started this print I heard about the legend of the 'broom man' who sometimes chased away unwanted tourists with his broom! If you look closely you can just about make him out waiting patiently.
