What an incredible pleasure it was to travel in Vietnam last Christmas!
Santa was everywhere! As were the joyful and exuberant Vietnamese people.
No where that I’ve traveled have I been met with such an endearing curiosity, people so eager to interact with you and learn about you. From the diminutive Hmung ladies of the northern highlands to Ho Chi Minh City college students traveling on their holidays to students eager to practice English. Everyone wanted to talk and smile and laugh!
And sell thing to you! The US may have settled for 'peace with honor' at the close of the Vietnamese War (or the American War, depending on where you grew up!), but it sure seems like capitalism out and out won!
For more pictures, each set on a different theme, I’ve got three sets on Facebook (Propaganda Art, Christmas and Music Edcation.) And check out my Flickr pages at . . . .
