A photo a week: scenes from the Saigon river

One of the things that I always like to see when visiting a new place is to see how she grows. One of the best places to observe this is usually along the river or waterways, since historically, Man has always started out on his geographical conquest from a water source or body. Similarly on a learning trip with my 20 charges to Saigon, Vietnam, one thing that intrigues me is to see and observe how she has progressed and grown over the years. The other thing that I would love to capture are the activities and the character of the river, of whether it is truly a reflection of the city centre, or simply belied her true inner spirits.
