Something I find quite striking in Vietnam is the proportion of women involved in the 'tough' jobs which, by most of western standards, are traditionally handled by men. You will find those courageous women doing road works (as you can see above), digging, collecting garbage - while, at the same time, handling the family duties... No wonder why many people say Vietnamese ladies have the strongest character! Kudos, mesdames.
