Morning Coffee Ritual

This trip to Vietnam in 2010 I decided to shoot some typical city scenes. City life has changed a lot there since my first trip in 1996 ... although rural and fishing villages are far behind the rate of modernization in the city.

Each day, men typically like to get out early in the morning to have their ritual coffee or pho (soup) with friends. I'm always struck by how relaxed they seem. Except for Saigon (and perhaps Hanoi though I haven't been there) they are not in such a hurry to get to work as we are in North America. The pace of life is still a lot slower.
