Our neighbourhood ...District 2, Ho Chi Minh City

Many of you may have already read my journey around our neighbourhood in a previous post on Collage of Life. For those of you who follow this blog only...the following is a glimpse into District 2, the area that we live in Ho Chi Minh City. I have explored many corners of it over our time here...and each time I always manage to find something new. Like Ho Chi Minh City central, our neighbourhood is forever changing...progress is most definitely in the air.


Preparing for Tế colour

It is unmistakable and undeniable...
"Tết", the Vietnamese New Year is in the air.
Tết symbolises the "Feast of the First Morning of the Day", 
the arrival of spring based on the Vietnamese calendar. 
It is a holiday like no other and the Vietnamese 
do a very good job of making the most of it.
