Back in the sixties when telephones were fixtures often the hall was used as a place to sit and chat.
Deserted hospital hallways are a bit unnerving when memories of trolleys wheeling too and carrying people to the wards or to the theatre and from the kitchen came the food. Noisy now quiet, disused.
Also deserted is the halls of the bunker under the Presidential Palace in Saigon. Rooms off these hallways controlled the South Vietnamese army.
At Angkor Wat many desserted hallways are found.
The Hallway of the old university in Hanoi is a place of calm. Both the turtle and the crane symbolise lasting power and longevity. When the crane is on the turtle’s back it means a healthy long life of happiness.
In the tropics some hallways are almost open to the elements.
Some hallways are opulent with places to sit and rest awhile.
Other hallways are short but still allow you to sit
or just move from room to room.
Some hallways allow for fun.
