Foto Phaves: Streets of Ho Chi Minh City
The Vietnamese carry everything on their scooters and motorbikes. We found watching the traffic in Ho Chi Minh City entertaining.
At the Tan Binh Market
Another heavy load at the Tan Binh Market. We saw people carry sheet metal, poles, several cases of cola, and all sorts of baskets of food on their small motor bikes.
Jackfruit are huge and must be cut apart to eat, typically small portions are made available by women on the streets. Most Americans only know jackfruit as the flavor of Juicy Fruit gum, although the fresh fruit is much better. One of our favorite snacks!
Women set up little cafes on the street with what they can carry.
Street food. Here, rather than from carts, food vendors often set up with minimal equipment that they carry by hand or on a motorbike.
Mobs of motorbikes. This was a small crowd...
