The man sitting by the wayside was a peddler and selling hammocks. He was just repairing one of his goods there. It was common to take a nap in a hammock in Vietnam. The young and old alike liked to use. It seemed to be comfortable, so much. Although there was a bed in my hotel, I thought I could sleep better if I slept on the hammock.

The hammock was very popular. So I thought it was a longtime fixture in this country. Yet it was said the US Armed Forces brought it into this country during the Vietnam war.
