This Tet is unusually quiet when compared to Tet a year ago. The streets are deserted, shops still closed, hardly any life in the city right now. At night the food vendors come out, this being their most profitable time of the year. Even the backpacker area is more quiet than normal.
I needed to buy some blank CDs so I could burn some FreeBSD images on them. It took me awhile but I finally found one open computer shop.
(Computer area in District 1 is dead during Tet)
(Normally this area is quite busy all times of the day in District 1)
(Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street in the distance)
(Another normally busy street deserted)
(This CO-OP Market is normally one of the most busiest in all of Saigon)
