Hanoi, Vietnam (2009 – The fall of South Vietnam in 1975 is one of the first international-political events I recall following, aged 12. In 2009, I travelled to the unified country. Soldiers were everywhere, but Vietnam didn’t feel particularly militarized. Indeed, it was very friendly and easygoing, aside from the insane urban traffic. I appreciate the solemn expression and classical features of the young man in his pith helmet.
