Halong Bay Pearls

Here's a video of the process of harvesting the pearls from Halong Bay-one of the world's most beautiful natural wonders. The limestone cliffs and caves formed from thousands of years of salt water erosion and tectonic plate shifting provide a background to the serene waters of Halong Bay (surrounded by the Gulf of Tonkin of Vietnam War fame) We floated overnight in a 'junk' boat after an afternoon of caving, kayaking, and swimming. PS I got a good deal on some pearls.
