Trash in Thao Dien, SaigonTrash in Thao Dien, Saigon
That Vietnam has a severe trash problem is well known. However, that it stretches all the way to the "best" living area of Thao Dien in Saigon is something you need to experience to understand. To me it is just another proof that money does not buy you education.

Red EnvelopeRed Envelope
Giving away money for luck is a common practice in the Sinosphere (East Asia, countries that share a common culture based on ancient Chinese influence). Depending on modern day culture, the amount can range from a small, symbolic gesture like two Hong Kong Dollars up to a third of the annual salary in a few cases. In Vietnam, often families pack up their whole host of children, grandchildren and other related offspring to tour the houses of relatives for the sole purpose of skimming off red envelopes. An old, but quite annoying practice at times.
