Not much to say here other than it's a hard life in Vietnam when you are poor...trying to make a living by all mean. This lady could be my grandma pushing the cart full of recycle.

That sure is an image that stays in your mind ... The human character is so resilient. Glad you took that shot Long ... it makes us stop and count our blessings.

At the background a petrol station and the old lady heavy pushing. Great street shot Long.

And we moan about having to push a supermarket trolly round to collect too much food and too many unnecessary bits and pieces. This shot will stay in my mind...

We saw many, many hard working people when we were there. It certainly opens your eyes to the privilidges of living in a first world society.
Yet, they still smile and welcome :-)
