This image is one of the reasons I came to Vietnam.

Girl

I grew up with the Vietnam War.  It was constantly on the news.  “Napalm Girl” was taken in 1972 by Huynh Cong Ut.   It  has stayed with me ever since.  Today I got to see the original in the War Remnants Museum.  Along with many other horrific and disturbing images of war.  Images  that made me wonder if we will ever learn.  Will man ever stop destroying itself or the world in the most barbarous ways.

GICaption

  The captions are sufficient.

Mangrove

Thankfully there are many more reasons to come to Vietnam.

Streetfood

Even more reasons than the food. Though I admit that has been the focus of my mind and camera for rather a lot of this week.

Kids

Along with some rather crazy architecture  where the kids ‘hang out’.

 Tree

Weird and wonderful trees

Streetstall
