Part two of Saigon tile adventure. I still can't believe all of these were in the same place!
I'm off to Malaysia next week for a wedding and can't wait. I'm not sure of the cousin getting married but we're now friends on Facebook so that has to count for something. There's going to be a massive amount of family, plus a whole heap flying in from Australia. This is either going to be awesome, or really really painful. Here's to the first!
Vietnam is currently in that economic and social stage where only the very the new and "modern" is considered beautiful and acceptable. These gorgeous tiles can be found everywhere but unfortunately don't fall into that category. Sadly this means you can often seen the haphazardly smashed up and dumped on the side of street. Oh well, who are we to judge.
I think they're beautiful and I find myself taking photos of them constantly. If you've ever been here you'll know they won't be here for forever! Amazingly these photos were all taken last week at the Fine Arts Museum in Ho Chi Minh City (I tagged along when Johnny was there for work). The 2 buildings the museum is housed in are gorgeous and there's over 30 different types of tiles.
Part 2 to come...
