Yesterday evening I was rushing to District 1 from the Phu Nhuan District at about 6:45 PM. I started to notice people lining up NKKN with small Olympic flags. Then I remembered that the Olympic torch for the Beijing Olympic Games were coming through. I needed to get down NKKN fast before the street was closed. Whoops, too late, I had to detour towards CMT8 and head towards District 1 from there.
Took about 30 minutes due to the heavy traffic. Near the Reunification Palace, traffic just stopped. I had arrived just as the Olympic torch was leaving for the airport. I was able to get some shots of the caravan following the torch. Sorry, no torch shots, too many people were in the way…
