After visiting the old man (see “War Hero” up-load) in the village of Ta Lai, I came across this young women carrying her baby in the traditional Vietnamese way. She was very happy to have her photo taken. I sent her a copy via the guide at Cat Tien National Park as a way to say thank you.

Thank you for your interest and comments on “War Hero”. It is photo which is close to my heart so your comments are important. Hoping this mother and baby will also create some interest.

Have a good evening,
