#WeAreSaigoneer: Instagram Shots of the Week

From vendors selling vegetables to hemside barbershops, this is what we saw through our lens this week.

 

 

 

 

 

We weren't the only Saigoneers out and about this week. Here are a few more #wearesaigoneer Instagram snaps:

Incense coils hanging from the ceiling in a temple. How long do you think these would last once burned?

• Monsoon Funeral (A Serial Documentary Narrative, #10) • So if you’re following along, my Vietnamese cousins’ grandmother in Ho Chi Minh City died, and this is the serial, multiday story of her funeral. If you're late to the party (well, the funeral), scroll down to the photograph with the bright orange silken death shroud. It starts there. • That night, after accompanying her remains to the morgue, where she rests in state until the family’s longtime fortune tellers can be consulted, I return to the Kwan Yin pagoda on Lao Tu Street, where I had bought the lotus blossoms that morning, to light some joss sticks — my family has been visiting this pagoda for generations, and it is the site of so much emotion, the depository of so many prayers for fortune, for fertility, for gratitude, and now of death. This image is made there, at an earlier, happier occasion. • Despite the heaviness of the loss, I still find it kinda cool that my family actually has longtime fortune tellers on retainer. • . . . #instatravel #JustBackFrom #travelgram #cnTravelEats #vietnam #traveldiary #travelgram #passportready #saigon #huffposttravel #resourcetravel #resourcemag #exploremore #guardiantravelsnaps #picsofasia #everydayvietnam #southeastasia #discovervietnam #traveldeeper #wearesaigoneer #storytelling #serialnarratives #hochiminhcity #openmyworld #storyboard #documentary #culture #personalstory #everydayasia #nonaspirational
