One of the delights of Asian parks, especially China and Vietnam, is how much they are used by the locals.  I shot these photos at the temple which is on an island in Hoam Kiem lake in the Old Quarter of Hanoi.

Every temple we visited in Hanoi had a stone container out front where people placed their smoking joss sticks which carry their prayers in the smoke.
