This is my favourite street shop in my home town Cantho, Vietnam. I usually buy coconuts from this couple, and feel the hardworking spirit from their faces, reflecting how normal people struggle in this Mekong Delta region.
The neighbouring house, once was a flower shop, now has a “House for lease” banner. This coconuts shop, selling the best food of this agricultural region, still survives in the trouble economic time.
People in Mekong Delta mostly struggle like this, very few had succeeded in finding new ways to “upgrade” their life, for many years.
