30 years ago would have been 1983. An independent southern Vietnam wouldn't even have been the second richest country in SE Asia let alone the second richest in all of Asia. :rolleyes:

^You got a shot of my apartment. Looks great at night.

KoolKool Oct 18, 2013 4:23 PM

^Phu My Hung is the upscale part of District 7 - lots of great cafes, restaurants (American fast food joints, too), Crescent Mall, etc. The map shows D7 with PMH outlined (roughly) in black.
