A scenic like Vietnam living next to a growing warlike Vietnam. Vietnam notes & photos 1965 1975

Scenes from Long Hai. A small fishing village it also contained a number of hotels which the French had used. Now deserted, mostly with shattered windows (nearby B52 bombings in the hills overlooking the village). The weekend would see a few Chinese down from Cholon and the odd Frenchman. A great change from Vung Tau which was rapidly becoming an R& R centre for the Americans full of dozens of girlie bars.
I liked it for it's tranquility but the nights were spooky and taking the road back to camp in the morning I would drive behind one of the lorries carrying fish to Saigon to avoid being the first to go over any mines.
