A photo in black and white of two friends in Saigon. This would have been in the mid-sixties. One went off to France and the other stayed behind in Saigon. The war was lost so the second went off to France as well. Some families had strong connections to France. Most of those who went to America were not connected to the United States but were refugees. The contrast between the social development of the Vietnamese on the two continents makes an interesting study which I shall deal with later.
