This is simply me and my camera at school finish in Ho Chi Minh City. Schooling in Vietnam has a high drop out rate (particularly in the countryside) because you have to buy your own books, and sometimes classes. However, I do like the fact that everyone spends about 15% of their time in manual labour to garner respect for that type of work. But like every kid in the world, they're happy to be out of lessons and to get on with being themselves. Most were picked up and transported on the back of the family moped, while some walked in gangs or got the bus home.
