Market Scenes

I arrived in Sai Gon early in the morning. I don't know why but I couldn't sleep at all. On the recommendation of noodlepie, I took myself to the Chanh Hung night seafood market.

I was so surprised about how welcoming and friendly the fishmongers are. They showed me the fish, and they even smiled for the camera , actually telling me to take pictures of everyone for fun. This impressed me a lot, as in other parts of Viet Nam people don't usually agree to having their picture taken.

Anyway, I took loads of pictures and I hope you guys like some of them.

hmmm ... does that happens only on special occassion. I find that most I meet in HCMC were usually camera-shy. Some perhaps you need to make some purchase from them before they pose for your camera :P
