In between meals on the pier, I snuck ashore to find the only geocache in Ho Chi Minh city.
From the shuttle bus drop downtown, it was an entertaining 1.5K walk through the city. I love getting out and going for big exploring walks all on my own – exactly wherever and whatever I feel like doing.
Balut and Corn
Nearby was the most amazing two streets of outdoor restaurant I had ever seen – and this is the part that sucks about going out alone – because I wished Sherwin could see it too, and that we could sit down and eat there.
At another restaurant, I was taking a picture of this very interesting meal – where they all seemed to be adding whatever toppings they wanted and cooking their own soup. Until the girl on the left shouted out to me in a friendly and perfectly-Canadian voice – “You can take a picture of us if you want! I’ll even smile this time!”
Too funny! Here I thought they were locals! I should have stopped and talked to her, to see what they were eating, but instead I scurried away, red faced and flustered. Look at her smiling, enjoying her little joke on me! She seemed nice.
