It’s all about the motor bike in Ho Chi Minh City. At the first sign of rain as the thunder rumbled in late this afternoon, riders pulled over to don rain coats especially designed to cover them and their bikes.
The bikes and other traffic make for interesting navigation across roads whether there’s a zebra crossing or traffic lights or not. Navigation is a fine art of watching and walking slowly with purpose through the traffic that threads its way around you.
Today is the first day of an almost two week visit back to Vietnam. We’re here for the food and the people watching and, on warm days like this, air-conditioned coffee shops with iced drinks and free wifi.
