Who is he waiting for?


A couple times a week, my American friend and I meet up at a coffee shop along Xo Viet Nghe Tinh street not far from the Saigon zoo.  Guess what this street is well known for from the pictures below:

Prostitution is very prevalent in Vietnam

You see Vietnamese guys driving along this street, if one stops, many of the prostitutes will gather around them.  This is done in plain view of the coffee shop, other shops, familes, etc.  Occasionally the police drive by but they really do not enforce the “social evil” laws anymore.
