[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A statue of Ho Chi Minh sits in a tiny park in front of the former Hotel de Ville now the People's committee in downtown Saigon. Here 'Uncle Ho' as he is known in Vietnam is seen cradling a small child in his lap.I would not pretend to be capable of telling the man's life in full in a page here and it is not my intention to do so.I would recommend some reading about him , after all he has been one of, if not the main actor in the geopolitical history of his country.
