RECENTLY I visited the military cemetery in Mai Chau, Vietnam. Visiting Mai Chau is like stepping back in time. Paddy fields are ploughed with water buffalo guided by men in rolled up trousers thigh deep in mud. Each evening the water buffalo are walked back to sleep underneath the family home. The homes are on stilts where animals shelter under the building and the people climb stairs to sleep under thatched roofs. Women gather leafy vegetables by hand, filling baskets held on their backs by a strap around their foreheads.
