[saigon streets]
saigon vietnam 1995/2010
I have been visiting Saigon (downtown Ho Chi Minh City) ever since 1995. This place has sure changed over the years, but in any many ways has stayed pretty much the same. Motorcycles have always outnumbered cars, and streets remain as anarchic today as they have ever been. Motorcycles are to Ho Chi Minh City what gondoliers are to Venice, they are an essential part of the culture. The models may be fancier today, and the riders wear helmets (they are forced to, by Government decree). The problem is, how will I ever find myself back, to this beautiful riot of Chinese art?
