Take a One-Minute Vacation with the Quiet American

Filed under: Travel — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

If you are stuck at work, take an audio vacation with the Quiet American. These recordings were made in Vietnam and include such names as Bleeding, Karaoke, and Water Buffalo.

My favorite is called Washing. Here is the description:

Women wade in the river and wash bamboo trays that will freshly caught fish to be sold in the nearby Hoi An market. I was laughed at for sitting near them to record this, as the same stretch of river is the market’s public toilet.

Listen to Washing here:

Eavesdrop on a different world from the comfort of your desk and enjoy!
