Vietnam 15: Hoi An, the Japanese Covered Bridge and Street Scenes

Entrance to old covered bridge
by Pa Rock 

There is a beautiful old covered bridge in the heart of Hoi An that was supposedly built by the Japanese 400 years ago.  A little Internet research, however, reveals that the bridge has actually been rebuilt several times during those four centuries.  Also included are a couple of shots taken from inside of an old home that is now being used to showplace ancient crafts and sell hand sewn items to tourists.
