there is a booming business painting copies of famous paintings in both hanoi and saigon. some of these guys are really good. they could easily do their own work, but it probably wouldn't be a living (don't i know it).
last night when we saw the gymnastics i posted about, there were also booths in the park selling high end souvenirs, including some exquisite ship models. i say high end, but, for example, an 18 inch very detailed sailing ship was $25. a perfectly rendered motorboat, with teak decks was $15. both would easily sell for ten times that in the states. made me dream of being in the import-export business.
see you in phnom phen!
