I pass the guy below often... and think he's pretty awesome.
He sells daily lottery tickets from his cart in pajamas every morning!
I bought a lottery ticket from him for 10,000d (about 50 cents)... so that I could then ask to take his picture, of which he obliged. :)
My buying this Disney lottery ticket caused a bit of a crowd around the man's cart! Ha!
Now that I had a lottery ticket, had to try and figure out what to do with it...
There's a lottery shop on Phan Xich Long... the main street in my neighborhood (shown below). I went there... realized that the date on the sign outside was for winning tickets the day before... and the date on my ticket was for the next day... so I went back the next day...
Well... sorry to disappoint you all by telling you that my ticket was NOT a winner.
...But it was fun to figure out how to play the Vietnamese lottery!
