Walking Snapshot Tour of Saigon

The same day as the Fine Art Museum, we decided just to walk around aimlessly and get a better feel for the city. Here are some of my favorite snapshots to give you a better idea of the city.

The things you see while traveling are amazing. People use all the resources they can to get around and make the most of it. We could publish a book about what we have seen loaded onto vehicles. On this trip, Cody actually spotted an elephant in the back of a pickup truck driving down the road but was unable to sneak a shot in time.

 

Moving Day?

I thought this was cute with the wild dog and the pet chicken. Often, in the US it is the other way around.

In the market we saw some really cool sights. I liked this woman selling things on the side of the road.

 

Taking a Break

Cody and I took a break at the side of the road and happened to find ourselves next to a local school. When we first sat down, we did not know, but soon, parents and other family members began showing up and waiting outside of the building gates. Pretty soon there were a ton of bikes and as soon as the gates opened on the hour, a ton of screaming kids crawled on the bikes where they could and rode off. It was madness but such a fun thing for us to see.

Another amazing thing was seeing the electricity poles throughout the city. They were wired up and such a mess I was surprised that anything worked and that everything did not catch on fire.

And my last snap shot is a shot of Cody and a glass bottle Coke. Every time we see one, we not only get one, but take a photo for Dutch.
