Last Saturday morning was special because of two things. One, it was our second photowalk in District 1; two, I got to test my new camera-Nikon Coolpix S6200. We were supposed to go to Mui Ne that day but the weatherman had warned us of Typhoon Pakhar’s visit in the country so we decided to cancel the trip. Pham Ngu Lao and De Tham Streets were crowded-tourists and residents bound for Mui Ne, Da Lat and other cities to get out of Saigon for the long weekend (Saturday, Sunday and Monday which is the Hung Kings’ Day, a national holiday).

There we were with our cameras and watchful eyes to capture some interesting sights on that fateful day. Sharing with you five of the photos I took. Don’t expect too much though-I’m yet to learn some tricks and wifey has just taught me this technology they call ‘Picasa’.

Can you spot the roofed motorbike?

Many Vietnamese teens ride on a bicycle to school. They do too, at the weekend, to meet their friends at the park.
