VIETNAM 2013 #142

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Continuing from yesterday's upload about the crossing of the Hau Giang (one of the nine ďarmsĒ of the Mekong). As well as the unexpected empty coffin, there were on board some women selling lottery tickets and wearing the iconic conical hats.

The Vietnamese love to gamble so people will come out of nowhere and try to sell you tickets. The winnings are small and the earnings from selling tickets must also be small but for some itís the only way to earn a living (getting some food on the day).
