Seems only fitting that my final images from Saigon, are of the vespertine variety…..
Right after this shoot, had some amazing dinner at “3T”, on a rooftop restaurant… DIY BBQ! Then took a final hour-long motorbike tour around the city… managed to get it close to 100km/h (with someone on the back!) before chickening out. I need to get me one of them!
Our last day was spent on temple patrol… hitting up temples all over the city. It was too hot, which in turn made me too lazy to keep removing my camera from under the motorbike seat… shame on me, I know. Also went through Chinatown, as well as hitting up the army surplus store, where I saw as many rats as I did vendors, but at least I found a dope pair of army shorts for $4. Also, can’t forget our final Saigonese banh mi!
Well I managed to start and finish the day with a delicious banh mi…. oooooh yeah. And check out that safe shop… can you imagine being the poor bastard who has to put those outside every morning…?!
The Cu Chi tunnels… 121km of underground tunnels used during the war, which not only served as escape routes and hiding spots, but housed hospitals and ammunition storage rooms.
The areas surrounding Cu Chi are home to acres of rubber trees…
Also, just had to take a picture of a truckload of My Dung [*giggles like little girl*].
