I am in Saigon — Ho Chi Minh City – in Vietnam.Â (You can see photos at http://flickr.com/photos/rameshjain/)
This place reminds me a lot of India — it is quite similar along many dimensions, from economic status, climate, development, and to some extent religiousness also.Â I have been here more than a day and have been a tourist so far — now the part related to work — meeting some people from ECAI.org — will begin.
This morning when visiting the War Museum, I felt terrible and could not help thinking and feeling guitly about Iraq.Â I know that in war every county behaves the same, but the Iraq war was really not needed.Â It is a mistake.
A very noticeable aspect of this city is the number of two-wheeler used here.Â Number of motor bikes ranging from mopeds to scooters everything is here.Â And roads are simply crazy because of that — you have to experience it — very difficult to describe.
Sir, thanks for sharing your photos with us, really great.
I had the possibility to meet some people from Vietnam in former times. They are very, very friendly and diligent people. Sometimes I want to make a journey to Asia.
