Out to Lunch, on Flickr. Benches donated by returning overseas Vietnamese. Pagoda in Vung Tau, Vietnam. Someone told me that the text on the
bench of the left reads: "doing good is the greatest source of happiness". Vung Tau, August 2012. Fuji X-100.

Your friend is right, all other benches wrote the donators' names...in 'traditional Chinese', meaning they are oversea Chinese Vietnamese...


Starlight Night Club with a Chinese sign; '星光夜總會'...strangely, the Chinese name is the same w the English name...most of the time it'll be different

The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor in New York City, in the United States. The copper statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel. The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886.
The Statue of Liberty is a figure of a robed woman representing Libertas, a Roman liberty goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed in Roman numerals with "JULY IV MDCCLXXVI" (July 4, 1776), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken chain lies at her feet as she walks forward. The statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad. [Source: Wikipedia]
