‘Sleeping Xich Lo’ Hoi An

 

For my Hoi An series I made a selection of woodcut prints inspired by many trips around the ancient town. On one walk I came across this xich lo driver who fell asleep whilst reading his paper! These peddle taxis are a symbol of Hoi An and effortlessly weave in and out of the tourist crowds ringing their bells.
