Crying cockles and muscles alive alive-O - at a Ho Chi Minh market place
This young woman looks with rapt attention at the incredible variety of live clams and snails offered for sale in this bustling market off a side street in Ho Chi Minh City. These shellfish are a tradition in the Vietnamese diet and they are found in the rice paddies, rivers, lakes and the East Sea.
