We continue with Part 16 of the 16 part series Deja Vu: Vietnam. The series of videos is made using Google Earth to focus in on various parts of Saigon and surrounding areas of Vietnam. Then overlaid with video footage filmed in 2007 with ‘fade backs’ of videos and photos going back to various time points in prior years. Some all the way back to 1882 Saigon.
In this video we travel down the past and present Bien Hoa Highway to visit the South Vietnam National Military Cemetery, Thu Duc Water Plant and the New Port Bridge. Then we’ll be travelling back to Tan Son Nhut Airport for departure from Vietnam.
Each of us lived in Saigon at different times during the years from the mid-1950’s to 1975. Because of the span of time we lived in Saigon, different parts of the series will mean more to each of us … but, they will all trigger memories and experiences of your time in Saigon.
A Born To Wander Production
This completes the 16 part series. I hope everyone has enjoyed it. And, that it has refreshed your memories and experiences of your days in Saigon. I know it sure has mine. I’m sure all of us have had questions lurking in the backs of our minds about Saigon and Vietnam … perhaps some of those questions have now been answered for you though these videos.
For those of you going to the Saigon Reunion 2009, I hope you’ve been reminded of long forgotten places … you’ll want to put on your agenda of places to revisit while in Vietnam for the reunion.
For those who will not be attending the reunion, perhaps this ‘virtual’ revisit to Saigon will serve to satisfy your yearnings to return to Saigon.
While this is the last part of the official series, I’ll be making two additional posts, in coming weeks, pertaining to Deja Vu: Vietnam. Stay tuned!
