Ho Chi Minh Still Watches

Poster of Ho Chi Minh

A poster of Ho Chi Minh was stuck on the wall

Shot in the city of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.

The man in the poster was Ho Chi Minh, a Vietnamese Communist revolutionary and statesman. And he has died in 1969 already though, he was still an icon of this country. At any rate, he was the man who defeated the United States. He smiled gently in the poster. And he seemed to be glad to see the development of his country.

On the other hand, the pedestrians passed by the poster without watching his face. Although a kind of propaganda was written on the poster, the locals didn't seem to be interested in that.
