one dollar


this i noticed ...

the younger vietnamese are rather money oriented; everything comes with a price tag. for example, if you seek their permission to take their photo or they pose for you + you go click click, it'll cost you USD 1.

the elderly, they just nod to give permission + smile at your camera.










run!!!! <- sebab amek gambar curik

dah balik mesia pun

when you go backpacking ... you're actually not alone ... there are other backpackers like you ... when you're doing a solo, you'll definitely make new connections with other backpackers + sometimes you ended up gerak sekali ngan diorang to the next destination
