a sad farewell to Thailand
After the quiet of Thailand we soon arrived in the chaos of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). Vietnam has 80 million citizens and 40 million bicycles - when you travel through the streets of any large city you notice this fact! The streets are mad, crazy and you have to shut your eyes and hope for the best when crossing the road.

We spent a few days in Saigon, the most wonderful experience enhanced by one of Tara's long but not lost friends; Bart, his wife Hanh and their daughter Pickle. They treated us to wonderful meals and introduced us to a side of Vietnam we probably would not have seen if they hadn't pointed us in the right direction. Bart - this part of the blog is dedicated to you and your wonderful family.

Dining out in Vietnam is a true experience, they eat everything and anything!

A visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels is a must on anyone's itinerary; it is humbling what the Vietcong managed to achieve during this awful war.
