Ferraille

Cholon, Vietnam, February 2010
Exciting Saigon
Life in HCMC continues going on at its crazy pace, motorbikes continue circling around while the city pursues its constant transformation. Last week, buildings were knocked down overnight in the heart of the city center while others are being built...

Same same but different.


My sad little story about all this, is that I lost track of my little wooden toys lady. I used to buy a wooden toy each week to this little lady located in the now former Eden Mall and each week she would joke about me being a bit older than most of her customers. The big shops have put up signs indicating their new location, but no signs from my little wooden toys lady...
Troi oi.

Troi oi ! T'en faisais collec' ou tu jouais avec ?
Ca change tant que ça le centre ? Je me souviens des rapides travaux à l'angle d Hai Ba Trung et Nguyen Du ... impressionnant ... et méconnaissable post-transformation.
(d'ailleurs si t'as que ça à faire, tu peux m'envoyer des photos de ces lieux qui mutent :) )
