Decent sunset

We don't often have good sunsets in the city, so when one comes along it makes for a nice change

Fishing with protection

Must be some pretty scary fish in that ocean! I would presume this guy is actually wearing his helmet because he thought it might be stolen if he left it with his motorbike

Kite surfer

Kite surfing has become very popular at Mũi Né, about 200 kms north of HCMC. Some of the newer participants to the sport struggle to tack back up into the wind and therefore, as this young bloke has, decide to walk the kite back up the beach before jumping back into the water.

When people think of my city, they think of . . . . . Hồ Chí Minh

This month's theme day is pretty easy when your city is named after a person. Hồ Chí Minh is revered for leading the Viet Minh independence movement from 1941 onward, establishing the communist-governed Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1945 and defeating the French Union in 1954 at Dien Bien Phu. He led the North Vietnamese in the Vietnam War until his death; six years later, the war ended with a North Vietnamese victory, and Vietnamese unification followed. The former capital of South Vietnam, Saigon, was renamed Ho Chi Minh City in his honor.
