goodnight, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!

The old lady in this picture sleeps in this spot every night right next my favourite Bun Mam eatery in an alley off Vo Van Tan St in HCMC. In fact, I took this image from where I sat eating. She would usually sit and smoke a cigarette before turning in for the night and this was the only time I saw the child there with her. I assume it is a grandchild or niece perhaps. Certainly not the most comfortable of beds and a very public one, but something not uncommon in this city and nobody takes any notice, nor does anyone bother her.
