Temple of Literature

The imposing entrance gates to Viet Nam's first university:-

As you enter, this vista of peacefulness greets you:-

The accountant's reflection in the honour roll:-

I loved the Temple of Literature. I wished I was on my own and I would have sat myself down on the inviting grass, opened up whatever book I had at the time and whiled the rest of the day in the complex.

I would also have loved to have been a student of the Temple of Literature. I can picture myself, nose buried in book, mind half composing poetry and hoping to become a public servant (har har). Oh, except that I would have to have been a man. No, thank you!
