Ho Chi Minh City was formerly known as Saigon and is located in the southern part of Vietnam. Being the largest city in Vietnam, it has a total population of over seven million. It is my third trip there on business and I can still recall the first time I stepped out of the airport … I was amazed by the number of motorcycles roaming their busy streets. Traffic seems chaotic but the riders and drivers were very careful and pretty courteous. Taking a walk around the city, you can find both modern and retro lifestyles and buildings melted into one. One moment you will find street hawkers with their customers happily enjoying their meals sitting by the roadside on little wooden stools and the next you’ll find some elegant looking cafe and restaurants.
People are generally very friendly and nice but if you speak English only, you will probably have to check out the more modern shops and restaurants because you might end up looking like an alien when ordering food or bargaining with the locals who speak only Vietnamese. Tons of shops offer very beautiful artwork and handicrafts. Don’t forget to check out their local food especially the beef noodles (I think they call it ‘pho’).
In the third and final installment of his Russian love story, Herr Willie recalls some of the most memorable experiences from his trips to post-Soviet Russia, including traveling aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway and shooting with the La Sardina for Lomography on assignment, and waxes nostalgic about all the amazing people he had met.

Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
