Saigon’s District 1 is a labyrinth of intriguing warrens where everyone lives their lives out in the open. At night one can sit at a small bar and watch as life carries on at a breakneck speed around you…
Sitting in the Ba Ba Bar, watching the night life of Saigon flash by…
Everyone cooing over the baby.
I think these same guys were sitting there three days ago as well; the only action on their part is the blur of beer glasses.
I have half a dozen photos of this little boy who amused himself by posing for our cameras.
Father and daughter speed through the night.
The bicycle vendor of hot soup. Most bars don’t have food, but they will summon anything you want from people and places that do.
As we leave the bar in search of food we pass the neon lights of District 1 reflected in this shiny vehicle.
At the park across from the warren a New Year’s celebration was going on. This grey military man appeared at the edge of my photo like a ghost.We went to the Taj Mahal Cafe twice. It was located down one of the many alleyways, and we had some really good conversations and food there.More on our December 2013 trip to Vietnam.
