People Monday – Vesak Eve Celebration

Vesak Celebration, originally uploaded by anthonli.

I know I’ve not posted for a week. It boils down to general laziness. But after a good weekend’s sleep (literally slept through the whole weekend), I’m up refreshed and committed to continue blogging.
This is fresh, hot off my camera today!
Tomorrow is Vesak Day and although it is not an official holiday here in Vietnam, there are many devout buddhists who today make a pilgrimage to the many pagodas around the city. Also many trucks are decorated as floats, driving round the city to garner people to go to the temples and pagodas.
Here is one of the floats with performers on board. Look at the crowd of people on motocycles between me and the float!
