A characteristic shop you can find on the streets. Are normally very small, but you can find all sorts of stuff. Are typically so full that sometimes there is almost no space to sit for the vendor.
A woman selling noodles in a small alley of the streets in Can Tho. These people work all day, a rather tiresome, constantly cooking in the heat of the fire and steam. All for very little money, but their spirit seems to be positive.
In Can Tho, from early morning until late afternoon, right on the Mekong River's shore, there is a local market. In Vietnam you can eat almost anything that breathes (except humans of course). You can eat all kinds of animals... dogs and cats included.
A man working in the shadow inside his house. Everyone must learn how to do as many things as possible... it's also a way to save money. Adaptability is definitely a remarkable skill, that everyone should learn.
Walking the streets of my neighborhood. A typical Vietnamese vendor carrying her goods along the city streets looking for customers. Carrying this stuff all the day is pretty tough and tiring, sometimes she needs to take a break and sit on the street, perhaps waiting for the customers to come.
A shot taken on the street in Can Tho. In Vietnam helmets are compulsory only for adults.. who anyway, use mostly fake helmets. Therefore the kids are always exposed to the high risks of the dangerous Vietnamese traffic.
A few meters away from my home there is one of the many and very popular street restaurant that you can find everywhere on the streets of Vietnam. Surely the ideal place to save money for eating, and frankly there are often very good dishes.
Early in the morning the team of street cleaners, all "well equipped", go to the streets to clean them as well as possible. Normally I see women working on the streets in Vietnam. During a stop on the bus journey to Châu Dôc, I saw a team of women street cleaners who were drying the puddles on the roadside.
A woman with a fan trying to cool off inside the house. Today is another muggy day in Vietnam ... the monsoon season is over and the days pass torrid and humid.
Another shot from the floating market near Can Tho. This is the traffic on the Mekong River.. peddlers on their boats seeking customers, while others exchange the goods or purchase large quantities that they can later sell on the mainland. Unfortunately this market is no more what was use to be in the past years, becoming every year less attended by the local vendors.
