Saigon is a chaotic city with something completely bizarre, funny, interesting, or confusing pretty much on every block. “Sidewalks” are all relative- people drive their motorbikes on sidewalks, and block them with tables, chairs, fruit stands, grills, and parked motorbikes.
Here’s a look at a few samples of the hilarity:
I left Saigon this morning and took an 8 hour bus ride to Dalat, in the mountains. Interesting scenery along the way, and Dalat looks really cool so far. It’s much cooler here temperature-wise. And, it’s about 90 notches down the intensity scale from Saigon.
Probably going to check out some waterfalls tomorrow. The “plan” is stay here 2 days, then head to the beach at Mui Ne.
