Lead car in a funeral procession--Saigon

Lead car in a funeral procession. With so many old people in so many houses clustered together, there is nearly always a funeral in a Vietnamese neighborhood.

As the coffin leaves the house, it's turned around by the pallbearers and made to bow three times, and it'll bow three more times as it leaves its alley. I find this ritual very touching.
