122/365 - Philly's Viet Nam

A brightly decorated shopping center that includes a Vietnamese food market that is simply amazing.
A Buddhist Monk that I met and spent time talking with.
Many elderly folks were accompanied by young family members.
A little market with a great collection of cookware!
I have come to love "Pho". Soup that is prepared a "million" different ways. Soooo delicious!
South Philadelphia has a very cool section that is populated by many folks with a Vietnamese heritage. It is a very interesting and friendly area. You can get the best Pho (soup) in its many fine restaurants.

Lesson Learned: People are so different in so many ways - but so alike in many, many more ways!
????? Very intersting and nice set. Do you know Viet food?
I never had the chance to taste it.

trippindelight Great photos of this interesting part of your city. I like 2 and 4 best. And I think looking for the similarities rather than the differences is a positive approach to many things.

Annbramwell Love the Monk's trainers and beanie hat! Not terribly traditional, but I am sure very practical...

karmankwarner When we were living in Kansas my Daddy worked with a young Vietnamese man. His family was so kind to us; invited us to share their New Year. Treated us with love and respect; mostly because that is how my daddy treated the man he worked with. It was a really neat celebration. Thanks for the reminder of that wonderful day. :)

????? I would just love to try the Vietnamese food there and shop~ how cool!!!

djnana I love the candid images you gave us of their culture. They have such a rich history. Larry spent a year in a Vietnamese village with only two other Americans - and he came to like their food. Have you tried "nuoc mam" sauce? It's an acquired taste!!
