HCMC / Saigon

Monday, 3 Sep 2012 | Views [441]

We left the hotel at around noon for the war museum. We were instantly hounded by several Cyclo drivers. I think the drivers see Jared and assume he has trouble walking (which, granted, he did - he did not wear his gloves and got tired after walking ... Read more >

Jared has just left for the airport to board his plane for Laos. I get to use our room's computer for a few more hours (and the room's A/C - which, I can't believe I'm saying this - I am really enjoying). As for the heat - it is actually not that hot, ... Read more >
