Sunday in the Botanical Garden

This is big garden in Hanoi with so many big trees and a small lake and a hill. It has been lovers' favorite place. Now, it is a weekend destination for families, too. But I have been there once. Long time ago. Yesterday, my son participated in an open air painting contest which was held there by ILO and Asscociation for Protection of Children's Rights. So I took him to the garden. We spent the whole morning there. My son had a chance to take part in a community activity and his mum had a chance to be in a peaceful place. There were about 150 young artists. He did not get a prize but a T-shirt and a bag of 'lunch'. I took some photos of him, sitting on the tree bed and painting.
