Ho Chi Min City, Vietnam - It often seems like we live our lives constantly trying to not be tethered. Laptops with massive battery life, BlackBerry’s and iPhones that push our world right to our handsets and wireless internet that keeps us unplugged but connected to the world. In Ho Chi Min its quite obvious that the city is struggling to modernize. As the masses race around the city on their motorbikes talking and texting, its clear they are a society in transition. Everywhere you look the wiring stung along the streets was are astonishing. I noticed this man pulling on wires as if to make some sense of it all. We were told the majority of the cabling was for TV. Hard to tell if he was a repair man or a neighbor stealing cable. With wiring like this, one should be fairly careful about which one you cut.
