Vietnamese Village Lady Smoking

I photographed this lady in North Vietnam several years ago. Over the years I've come back to look at her numerous times. She was crouched on the bare ground enjoying a cigarette while watching a group of American tourists exploring her village. She never interacted with anyone and I often wondered what she was thinking. I would have liked to hear her story and wish she had shared her memories of the war years.
