Picture was taken in February 2005; while visiting my wife's family in Viet Nam. This Post Office is located in Saigon. I like the repetition in the arches of the cieling and thebooths with the green and gold paint.

Note the guy standing in the center at the service table with a bowl of soup (Vietnam fast food on the go) lol

Where are the long lines and expressions of exasperation? :-)Looks way to efficient for a post office. Nice shot, BTW

Thanks!

My first time at the post office in 1999, I called my parents from one of the many phone booths inside. I got the answering machine and when I started to leave a message the operator cut me off and charged me $1.00 - I never got to leave a message, I definitely had an expression on my face then.

The looks of exasperation comes from the Vietnamese that have to pick up packages sent from other countries. You have to open the box at the office in front of someone. That person sorts thru the package, and keeps the box it came in. Also if there are any cassettes, dvds, video tapes, etc; they keep them and inspect them for 24 hours.

Also when the Vietnamese send an item, they have to use one of those old boxes that they kept from someone else.
