On the Mekong (70)
|I take a big jump from Sweden to Vietnam and go back a few years but remain in the digital era.|
This is a town called My Tho, a couple of hours' journey from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) in southern Vietnam. It's the first town you reach in the Mekong delta when travelling southwest. Many tourists make day trips here, but there is a fairly limited range of sights offered and quite a lot of people crowding at the same places. There is much more to see further down the delta.
This photo is of course nothing special, but it gives you a glimpse of life on the mighty river. I took it from the landing at the top of the staircase outside my hotel room.
Here is a larger version.
Two more colourful photos from My Tho can be seen as workshops, one showing a lady selling fruits, the other ladies selling flowers.
If you want to see where I took the main photo the map coordinates are 10.352886 106.367904.
