This kid setup a sign charging $1 for use of the bridge they built. Clever, but two problems. First the sign was in vietnamese so the tourists had no idea what she was on about. Second, the guides thought it was funny to flaunt the rules. I think she had a fun day though.

You write: This kid setup a sign charging $1 for use of the bridge they built. Please correct it : Kid charge 2,000.00 Dong (vietnam)to cross the bride ( Rate if change in time you took picture is about $US-100.00 is 1,600,000.00 Dong VN. Then 2,000.00 dongVN is about 1/5 dollar or 20 cents (not yet the quarter) Jan 2008
