City scapes of area close to campus in HCMC Ho Chi Minh City District 7
Friends, above you see a group of people and their boat who are living in the forest across the canal from the University. We don't know much about these folks but we have watched them ply their boat along the waterway and guide it into their parking area in front of the tents that you an see through the trees and large leafy plants. We took our morning walk today and the boat wasn't there --- the people had probaby already gone to work fishing or whatever it is that they do in this bustling city.
As we continued our morning walk we thought it would be good to put up our first picture of the city scape high rises that are an imposing feature of the City. From the campus I believe that this picture is taken to the west and north, I have yet to get all my bearings but I am working on it, and will have it down soon. No matter, it is evident from the pictures the amount of new construction that has been built in District 7 and more is going up.
