Album: 04-02 Saigon, Vietnam

     Album:2015:04-02 Saigon, Vietnam

Our first stop on our Asian tour, Vietnam! I wanted to stop in Vietnam out of curiousity, but it turned out to be one of my favorite places - Saigon is full of crazy activity, and has the most fascinating and wonderful driving style in the world.
The airport.

"Take off your clothing"
That's the most interesting airport security. Definitely going to be a pleasant flight! ( comments)

Finally starting to get well enough
to venture out on the streets. We are staying in the backpackers district. ( comments)

Matching clothes is a big thing in Asia. Or at least it's acceptable. ( comments)

Driving in the mass of traffic.
Is amazing. I actually love it. Traffic moves like liquid, which makes perfect sense to me. Merging with traffic on the roundabout ( comments)
