Thank you for your comments on the beautiful butterfly.

This is the last photo of my trip to Vietnam (March-April 2010).
It ends with some questions: what will those two boysís future going to be like? In 50 years time, when they reach my age, will their children still be going home in the evening riding a water buffalo after a day working in the fields? Will the traditional way of life I saw, going to be replaced by a more materialistic one?

V2 and V3 show the frenzy on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City. It is spreading throughout Vietnam.

If you want to see the unspoilt Vietnam, go there as soon as you can.

Many thanks to all of you and especially to those who followed this long series from the start.

A special thank you to my friend Loc who took me to some fantastic places and enabled me to meet all those lovely and friendly people I photographed.

Hoping youíll enjoy these last photos and have a look at the previous up-loads,

Jean-NoŽl

This series of shots of Vietnam have a joy to follow. Allowed us an insight into a culture, that we would not have had the privelige of otherwise having. Thank you so much for giving us that opportunity. Moira

An excellent set of images and presentation, thank you very much for your uploads, came to learn a lot about Vietnam from your gallery. Surely would love to visit there and for sure you were lucky to be there. Wish you more of such travels and captures.
