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.
Walking down the streets, the life is always hectic and very noisy, from early morning until evening.. among the constant traffic and the numerous street vendors.
One thing I immediately noticed in Vietnam is this particular way of riding a bicycle, almost like a Harley Davinson. Honestly I had never seen it before, and here seems to be very common. Normally you will see adults riding in such a way and basically there are several reasons.
A smiling street vendor on the streets near my house who sells lottery tickets. Lottery tickets seem to be an important business here. Besides the vendors who walk through the streets looking for customers everywhere, there are those who have chosen a location on the side of the road, where they spend many hours with a small table and a chair to sit on.
Here we are in one of the most famous and visited places of the world. One of those places that you always dream to see with your own eyes.. Once here you will be definitely impressed by the fascinating architecture of this building that stands majestically with its pearl white color in the middle of the red walls of the fort.
