Arriving in Ho Chi Minh
Last Tuesday night, we landed in Ho Chi Minh. We passed through customs quickly and Hung's oldest brother, Hyunh picked us up outside the airport. My first impression of the streets--a beehive--constant motion and activity. Motorcylcles are everywhere and sometimes there are four people riding on one together. When I drive, I am an overly cautious driver, I'm not sure how the drivers build up the courage to drive on these crazy streets. I was very happy to be safely buckled in the backseat of the car and letting an experienced driver maneuver though the traffic.
