Photo of the Week – Vietnam

Hard Hat – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

While on a cyclo ride in HCMC, I encountered this guy hanging out of a little motorized tuk tuk in HCMC.  I found his choice of helmet funny – a throw back from the war.  Granted, sometimes I felt like driving in Saigon was similar to going into combat!

    My favourite hat from Vietnam are still the conical straw hats that are seen so much. That says “Vietnam” to me. Lovely candid photo.

    just walking across the street in Saigon is like combat! nice photo. I like the subtle colour.

  4. “Granted, sometimes I felt like driving in Saigon was similar to going into combat!” I felt it so true when I first used motorbike here. But it’s easier when I keep using motorbike :)
