2000 Witnesses of timeⅡ.jpg

I went to Vietnam to look for a simple village that is disappearing in Japan. There sure were lots of nature, but I found myself more attracted to the liveliness of Vietnam instead. Vietnam is advancing at an incredible speed. When I arrived in Ho-chi-minh city, the first thing I was amazed by is the incredible number of motor bikes. Honda motor bikes were all over the roads like there is a flood, which even when bought used they cost many times more than the average salary of Vietnamese people. I thought the noise of them was almost like representing the liveliness of Vietnam. I hear the Vietnamese ride bikes to work, to a date, to cool themselves down in the evenings, and basically all day along.
