"Home again Home again Jigetty Jig "
Despite all the horrible wars and ideological conflicts that plagued Vietnam in the past century, life goes on as if nothing happened . I amazed me to see the ordinary folk continue to live their lives, regardless of the past , present or future. These nameless and faceless street vendors hawk their wares, carrying the burdens of their numerous goods, as well as their livelihoods, on bicycles, balanced on their shoulders or carried on their backs. Many of these people are probably war veterans or even belong to a royal family too. With little to complain about or someone to complain to they just go about how much money will they make today to buy food for their families.
