For laptops and desktops: hover over an image in the gallery (carousel) to get its description. Click on an image to get a full-screen image.  Click on the big X at upper right to dismiss this and return to the gallery.

Hovering does not work on touchscreen devices such as smart phones; I may try to add CSS to handle the lack of hover on such devices.  In lieu of that here is an expandable list.  Image 1 is two young Viet women striding along on a path.  Images are ordered to the right.
