Arriving at Siagon Airport.
We both needed Vietnamese coffee to get through the day. It's served with condensed milk.
Crossing the street is an adventure in itself. Just walk and hope you don't get hit.
This beautiful park was across from our hotel. Yes, that's an elephant bush.
In the afternoon we sat by the Saigon River, which features quite a bit of advertising.
Enjoying a drink by the river - 333, a local beer.
This is a delicous snack we bought from a street vendor.
Walking (and biking) through The Old Market.
This gives a sense of how different architectural styles are stacked together.
Traffic is like this all day, which is why crossing is so difficult.
Ben Thanh Market is the big market in town.
It's very common for people in the city to wear these masks, because of the pollution.
Giac Duc was our favorite restaurant in Vietnam. All the food was vegetarian.
The Jade Emperor Pagoda, a Buddhist/Taoist temple, featured an extraordinary assortment of dieties.
On our last night in Saigon, we enjoyed Banh Xeo. It's like a Vietnamese crepe.
The adventure continues!
