family of four, Saigon, Vietnam

It's not uncommon to see four people on a scooter in Vietnam. There is a baby seat for a scooter right in front of the driver and the steering handles in the future image.

this image reminds me of my family when we were very young (late '70s) shortly after the fall of Saigon. My dad had a Yamaha motorcycle. He would take us from Bien Hoa to Saigon with all 5 of us loaded! Those were the days...Thanks for a fond memory anh Long B. Nguyen.

Awesome shot, Long! Amazing way for the whole family to go. Funny thing, my wife used to ride with me on a motorcycle until the first baby came along! That was the end of that! V
