China Beach

China Beach



This was the beautiful beach where the American soldiers went for R&R during the Vietnam war (which the Vietnamese call the American War). Late in the afternoon the beach was deserted; the Vietnamese don't go out to the beach until the sun is almost down, pale skin being highly valued.
