There are many things we are blind to when we travel, and that's understandable. When you take a vacation, your mind is set on seeing pretty sights and quaint cultures, most of the time we neglect to see what lies beyond the touristy shops.
Ho Chi Minh City might be one of the most fastest growing economies, it even seems like it is growing so fast that it might be leaving some people behind. These are countries that don't have a proper social system installed yet.
This man is a beggar who sits outside the Ben Thanh Markets, one of the busiest tourist spots in HCMC, day in, day out. He is often shunned by both locals and tourists alike. And yet, we should still remember that he is part of depicting that city.
