Independence Day in Ninh Binh, Vietnam

Today is Independence Day in Vietnam; the day North Vietnamese forces captured Saigon in 1975. I heard some loud singing early this morning, but by the time we go down for breakfast the little tent that was outside has gone and some bright confetti is on the road. There are Vietnamese flags lining the road, but no other indications that today is a holiday. It seems a regular day for most people.

We head out as we have a few jobs to do and a few things to get. We wander around, finding a few markets, finding a few of the things that we needed. We also managed to get a Vietnam flag for about 50p.
