Seems strange sitting here months after the fact reminiscing about my trip to ‘nam. Especially considering my trips to Hangzhou, Suzhou and just getting back from 2 weeks in Thailand (more pics to look forward to!!). But back to the subject… Vietnam was everything I could have hoped for and so much more. Happy smiling people, amazing food, beautiful scenery… shit, words can’t really explain the sights, sounds and delicious aromas that can onl be experience first hand. And make sure you do.
Took the last full day in Vietnam just cruising around the city… over the river, past markets, fields, palaces and temples. Also had to give our farewell to Uncle Ho, well his empty tomb at least. We even drove through these tiny back alleyways… which got a little tricky when you hit oncoming motorbike traffic… yup, just look at those small street pics and imagine head-on around-the-corner-lurking traffic!
Then, when the sun went down, we saw some proper traffic (check out that last pic!). Ah, Vietnam… I miss you already.
GOOD NIGHT VIETNAM. Trust me, I will be back.
