Floating Village - Halong Bay, VN

I wonder if I could ever live like these folks in the Halong Bay floating fishing villages. Just visiting this place made me feel a bit like Peter Pan venturing out in Neverland. The floating houses are all painted such cute shades of neon, and the locals seem to lead such peaceful and simple lives. Realistically, I'd probably last a week or so just spending my days hanging out on the hammocks before I start missing the city life, but a visit here was definitely an eye opener. So many aspects of our lives are over-complicated and over-engineered, filled with so much "stuff." At the end of the day, going back to the basics and keeping it simple seems like a good way to go. These floating village communities were particularly interesting to me; I hope the VN government doesn't force them to resettle ashore...
