Erik,

Those are phone numbers for drilling and cutting concrete services. This kind of advertising is prohibited though.

P.S: it seems that Instagram automatically sharpened the photos a little bit too much,.

Hi Trung. Those are some great photos. One day I hope to be able to visit your country. I am just curious how you are developing your kentmere film. Very nice results. I have used it with DD-X and got nice results but expensive. Do you shoot it at 400? what developer do you use? Thanks

Dennis

Thanks Erik, that guy is amazing. Everyone thought that he's a professional athletic, but he's not. Just a normal body builder.

Another one,

Your average body-builder wouldn't be able to do these exercises. I would call him a calisthenics practitioner, since heīs doing bodyweight exercises.

I noticed his pants. They have a cut that make them seem functionally similar to a Japanese hakama, but without the extremely wide trouser legs. I didnīt see these on anyone when visiting Vietnam. Is this some sort of classical work-wear?

Great pictures. I keep coming back to this thread.

You're right, he isn't as normal practioner. Look at those eyes of other people around, we can see how they admire him.
His short is a customized one I think. BTW.

Seeing those big buildings is fascinating. Even in the south they weren't making anything like that when I was there. An your street shots are interesting as well. There seems to be a peace I didn't see in the south when I was there. War is never a fun thing to go through.

Oh, When was your last visit to Saigon?
You would be amazed if you come to see it now.
The city is changing and developing every 6 months, I guess.
Off the topic: Our Prime Minister just met US President Trump yesterday, I think billion US$ contracts would be signed between enterprises of 2 countries.
Long story short, come to to visit Vietnam to see how it has been changing. The war is over over 40 years ago already.

Always a great thread, thanks to Trung. I was in Hanoi 10 years ago (how time flies). The only two 5-star hotels were the Metropole and the Hilton. I had breakfast in both, and never enjoyed air-conditioning more. Don't visit in August!

Interesting BW page! Reminds me Toronto, where old buildings and districts are getting demolished to put high-rises. Most be comfy, but community, street life is going away.

Apart from the many mega projects it's good to see that there are also local city renewal initiatives...

Only thing worse than Hanoi in August is Saigon in August! I was there in 1998, must be very different there now.
Made the mistake of visiting Hanoi in January 2002 -- very cold and damp, though staying at the Metropole helped.

Thank you Rico and Kermaier,

The city is much different now (good and bad of course). There are bunch of new facilities now and all Int'l brands are there for instance Intercontinental, Sofitel, Marriott, Sheraton.... I would recommend to visit on November / December, cool weather.

Interesting photos, I just visit Saigon last week and will post photos once I develop the film.
Keep the photos posted!

No worry, old community is going away but new community is coming up.
That's how the change is, isn't it?

This photo reminds me part of the Moscow were we used to live with my wife, children and mother-in-law. Same kind of river with barracks, then barracks were destroyed and people moved to new tall buildings. Then metro came (subway). People who used to live in the barracks where still close to each other, newer people didn't care. You wouldn't know the name of people in next to yours apartment and it is the norm. Not so much of new community, instead of the old one....
