Saigon by Night (Ho Chi Minh City)

A nice photo of a meaningless skyline. They didn’t build anything significant to mark this skyline as Saigon’s. Toronto has the CN Tower. Paris has the Eiffel Tower. Sydney has the Sydney Opera House. Singapore has the Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands and the Durian. Saigon’s skyline is just a bunch of high rises. You wouldn’t know it is Saigon just by looking at it.

Trần Văn Tuân Apologizes to Hàn Đức Long

In a rare move by Communist Vietnam, Supreme Court Deputy Chief Justice Trần Văn Tuân publicly apologizes to Hàn Đức Long, who was wrongly imprisoned during the last 11 years. The apology took place in Hanoi on April 25, 2017 where crowds embittered by frequent injustices at the courts, threw slippers at Trần Văn Tuân.
