Last night we had dinner in a nearby hotel. They had a roof terrace so after we had finished eating we took our drinks out. We enjoyed a wonderful view of Saigon at night with the added bonus of a full moon. On the way back we saw another added dimension to Saigon streetlife - a Bingo game in full swing (or should I say full shout?) involving about 15 players on the pavement. Vietnamese bingo sounds pretty much the same as British bingo.
Today John wanted to walk down to the river. I am not at all averse to walking - if you could take away the cars and 5 million mopeds. They don't so much stop at traffic lights as swarm around them!
We made it down to the river without mishap. The air was less stifling and it was surprising how much river traffic there was.
