Resilient Vietnam

There was a story that went with this post. It appeared for a month and was then removed. I am not sure how this was done. The story, from memory, concerned the amazing resilience of the Vietnamese people. That despite everything, the French colonial period and the American war, which saw the bombing of the Purple City in Hue, the Vietnamese people still welcome foreigners into their country, and are friendly and courteous. I’m posting the removed photos again, along with this brief summary of my original thoughts. Should I be Paranoid?

    1. Thanks Manji for pointing this out. I don’t know what happened to it. Was it removed by the American CIA or the Vietnamese communists? I have done a brief update, with a short synopsis of the original story and a few more pics.
