Day 2 Reflection - Jaime Pang

Photo 1:This shows a alley full of rubbish in the district where the poorer Vietnamese stay 

Vietnam is broken into many districts,they are arranged according to their dialect and communication language.

Photo 2:This shows a building that has a structure similar to buildings that can be found in Paris
Many buildings in Vietnam have structures and designs that are adapted from buildings overseas.

As a communist country, Vietnam allows their people to choose their own personal religious beliefs and build places for such purposes.

  1. Jaime, you might want to go deeper and see from where is these adaptations in point number 2 being adopted from.

    Point number 3 talks about religious freedom here in Vietnam. You might want to note that not all communist countries adopt such religious freedom.
