Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam
Tough day in Saigon today. It is so noisy, so busy, and so much traffic here. I did the best I could tooting around town on a pedicab. (It’s good for the environment).
When I first started traveling here, it was all bicycles. Then, it was all Chinese motor scooters. Now, they're all Japanese and Italian models. Economically, there is lots of growth here.
The electrical wires tell the story of this city of 8 million people and 5 million motor scooters.
After being worn out from riding around, a good $10 one-hour massage was required.
