People with traditions sometimes controversial, people ruled by a corrupt and manipulative government (as in 90% of the world actually).. but people with a huge heart and always available to help others.. always willing to give you a smile.
Om in Vietnamese means Hug. The scooter taxis are called "Xe Om" because the customer hugs the driver during the ride.
Here you see a little girl hugging her father on a scooter.
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.
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 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.
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.
