My mate in Saigon, I don't even know his name! Hence, Mr Saigon Express.

Met him at a nice Pho restaurant in Distict X...Takes me everywhere in his little kapcai (slang term for rusty small motorbike in Malaysia). Has a heart of gold. Really takes care of me. Makes sure no one takes advantage of me.Always give him a little something as he doesn't have much. The Pho place probably uses his services but pays him a pittance.In his spare time, he is a motorbike parking attendant. He directs the bikes to their parking spots. Moves them around so there is more space for incoming bikes. Sends every staff member home, especially the older ladies

By far, bikes are the most popular mode of transport here in Saigon. One would think that everyone in Saigon was born with a bike. Make that two. Traffic, when it is busy, is chaotic. However there seems to be a method to all the madness. Strange, but

true. One has to really experience it to know. After many times, one simply gets used to it.
