Shoemaker fixing a shoe (Mèo Vac, Vietnam)
If you know the name of this type of Chinese-made sewing machine, please post a Comment or email me.
The shoe he is fixing was so old and used that I could not believe it was worth fixing. But for the tribe people, fixing old shoes is worth it, since it costs only a couple of cents, while a new paire costs probably close to one dollar.
