I’m very excited about an upcoming photo trip to Vietnam. In preparation for my trip, I stopped by my bank and got some walking around money. The local currency is the Vietnamese Dong, or VND. The photo below shows 1,600,000 VNDs. This is a little less than $70 at current exchange rates.
Below, the revered Ho Chi Minh as shown on a 200,000 VND banknote. Ho once stated something we would do well to heed in these times, “Remember, the storm is a good opportunity for the pine and the cypress to show their strength and their stability.”
