Capitalist Rats meet Saigon Micky

We beetled towards  Hoang Sa in District 1 (to check in with the lovely Lunch Lady of Saigon), when we came across a splendid park.

Saigon is strewn with lovely green spaces, beautifully treed, gorgeously shrubbed, elaborately flowered.  They often have magnificent ceremonial arches, stirring heroic statues and heavy duty exercise gear for the locals to fling themselves about on.

Often too they have rather incredible kiddies fun fairs with the most extraordinarily colour and fanciful rides imaginable.  The rides themselves are magical, mythical creatures garishly painted.

and there, literally, in an elephant’s ear,a rather remarkable representation of our favourite capitalist rodent.
