Ho Chi Minh City boast far more markets than the ones in the guidebooks. I stumbled onto this one while walking one evening through some of the more popular neighborhoods, and decided to come back the next day to this spot for a panorama.
Although it was November, it was humid and hot. The biggest stumbling block to taking this photo was not speaking Vietnamese. This makes it harder to create the rapport that can lead to a good impromptu portrait embedded into the panorama. In this case, people were tolerant of my 5 minutes of antics.
