Swimming in a Lake

The West Lake in Hanoi, Vietnam is one of the most crowded and lively places in the capital city. People who live nearby often go swimming in the lake, some even take a shower. The West Lake is more than a lake; it's a place for people to connect with each other or to escape reality for a minute by entering the peaceful scenery of the lake.
