Walking down the alleyway in Ben Tre, I saw an elderly woman coming from the other side. The woman, wearing a conical hat, stood tall and straight, towing a cart loaded with junk. It looked as if she was taking the junk she had collected to a scrap metal dealer to convert it into cash. She passed by in a flash, not paying any attention to me, a mere tourist.
In Vietnam, women are often seen working on the streets, just like men. It seems that there are more women than men, especially at street markets. Whether this is because of the nature of the culture or socialism, I don't know.
