We just can’t seem to get enough of Asia! Only a few hours west of China, we landed in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam. The in-your-face hustle and bustle of any Asian metropolis could be a bit overwhelming to a newcomer, but try adding 2 million motorbikes and no traffic laws! INSANITY!!! Once we maneuvered our way through the crazed streets (imagine playing life size Frogger), we were taken aback by all of the culture this historic city has to offer. Silk, music, fruit, jewels, and rice-coconut-shrimp everything, Vietnam is high energy and overflowing with inspiration.
To boot, it was Memorial Day back home in the States, and what better way to spend it than in Vietnam?! The war sites were out-of-control, but we’d rather be dancing the Viet-Congo than shooting an AK-47!
