Village of Dau, Mai Chau District, Hoa Binh Province
The paddy dikes that pattern this landscape must be carefully maintained or the harvest will fail. For the millions of farmers,
the làng, or communal village, is the focus of their lives, and a farmer’s life rarely extends beyond his or her village.
Family ancestors lie in tombs at the edge of the rice fields.
