It’s made international news at this point, so you might already know, but yesterday morning a huge bridge that they were building in the Mekong Delta, only about 60 km from Long Xuyen, collapsed. This was in Can Tho, where I’ve traveled for pizza on occasion in the past. However, one of this international news sites made a mistake, and now everyone is copying this little mistake, and now it’s being disseminated throughout the world. These sites that I’ve seen refer to the Hau River (the same river that flows next to Long Xuyen) as a tributary to the Mekong. It’s not a tributary you morons! It’s a branch of the Mekong! Just look at a map!
