A return to Vietnam, Part 1 – Saigon
I’be been a bit remiss in getting some images from our second trip to Vietnam. We arrived this June in Saigon , accompanied by Mark & Rosemary Sedgwick. (have a look at Mark’s website – http://www.theremarkableimage.com/) Anyway, Saigon! A city of around 14 million people and most of them on motorbikes and no traffic lights. It makes crossing the road very difficult. So, the highlights,
- The War remnants museum – formerly called the something like the US War crimes museum. A must see for any visitor to Vietnam. It certainly pulls no punches and is a pretty in-your-face indictment of war. Agent Orange is still affecting peoples lives and the young man in the orange tee-shirt is such a victim
- Palace of Reunification – Interesting but, if you’re stuck for time in Saigon, juts keep going.
- Chinese Market – A mad place teeming with people, narrow corridors and stuff for sale from floor to ceiling. Certain people with us could not resist a bargain or two!
