22/50.- Hanoi, Lenin Memorial


Although communism is long gone, and the spirits of free enterprise flood the streets of Vietnam, there are still some symbols of the old regime. One of them is this statue of Lenin.

Nowadays Vietnam is one of the most corrupted countries in the world. There seems to be no limit to what money can buy here. Students have to pay if they want a good post. Even policemen have to pay in order to have a good destination. Democracy is still a forbidden word.
