A Visit to Notre Dame Cathedral


What I love about Saigon is that the tourist spots are not just huge paper weights. They are living, breathing places. They are not just there for show but are actually still being used by the locals.

I try my best to visit the Notre Dame Cathedral every week apart from the Sunday Mass to say my prayers. That’s why it bothers me every time I walk to the cathedral and see these:

Mostly, the teens who does these to a national treasure.

Just sad to see the walls defaced.

Well, I do hope that writing their names on the walls mean that their relationship would last too. 😛

If you’re reading this and planning to write on the walls of the Notre Dame Cathedral, please don’t.
