In QuyNhon, the site of the ancient Cham city of Vijaya. Many ruins around. This was a random trip, I like visiting the smaller towns in Central Vietnam. This time round I was surprised to find a Moldovan plane and crew. Local airlines are growing so fast that they have had to lease from overseas.
As it gets hotter in our Burma, some kind folks place water by the street. You are welcome to help yourself with a drink. When I was a kid, I lived in Rajasthan. In the summer months, some local residents would fund building a small hut shaped water kiosk. They would hire a local women to dispense water via a small opening in the shed. They used a copper vessel with a long spout to dispense the water. You didn’t need a cup or glass to drink. All you have to do is bow down a bit, cup your hand in front of your mouth and then take a drink. Back then they used earthen pots to cool the water before transferring it into the coppor vessel. The water had a distinct earthy taste. Now they use plastic containers; the water feels boring.
Ciné Lux built in the late 1930s has closed down. I used to cross the busy intersection here to reach my home at street 172. They always showed Thai or Khmer horror movie - I learnt about the Ahp (a South East Asian ghost in the shape of a floating woman’s head with internal organs trailing behind, also knows as Krasue in Thailand) via the posters here. It could be an excellent location to shoot a horror film now. Maybe there is an Ahp inside.
