thanks for your comments!

on december 15th 2007 a law was enacted requiring all motorbike riders to wear helmets. on december 14th, about 15% of riders wore them... on december 15th it jumped to about 95%. the law isn't really enforced for children though, mostly because nobody sells helmets small enough for them...

i took about 6000 or so photos in viet nam this time... i might get around to organizing and re-sizing some more of them if i have some free time...
