Qbar...revisited









Yes....Qbar is still there...but bigger and better. Located at District 01 Ho Chi Minh City...within the Opera House. Night life is alive here...beautiful crowd. Back in Dubai....it is not uncommon if you are visiting a club alone (male, female or alien) for those ugly burly bouncers at the door to shoo u away...worst if you are an asian or non european...it's a fact.
Walking around this area..especially in the evening...gave a sense of deja vu.....i remembered the first encounter with tuan viet....the little shoe shine boy...wondered how he's doing now?
Wow....the Opera House looks so grand in the night!
One night....i met another shoe shine boy, Duc.. at almost the same spot I met Viet. For the memory...i let him performed his work. It was well done! Very professional....the 50,000 dong (about 10 dhm) given brought a big smile to his face.

Thanks for continuing with Vietnam!

Surprising architecture often to be found, a mixture of Asia and a French medium sized town - like represented by the Opera House.

Beautiful photographs. I would love to visit there. The history is so vast. I hope all is well. Take care.

I have no memory at all from Vietnam, I was 2 when we came back France. I would like to go there once...
However, I must try before to better speak vietnamese...
Impossible to find somebody here to clean ours shoes
And so I almost never clean them
