More Photos (II) of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (October 18-21, 2008)

These look like hats, but they're actually motorcycle helmets cleverly disguised as hats. Saigon residents take motorcycle riding to new heights of fashion!
I was constantly amazed by what people were able to carry on a bicycle or motorcycle. Equally amazing was where people rode them - in every lane of traffic, between cars and even up on the sidewalk!
