Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Travel Photography

We spent a quick three day weekend in Ho Chi Minh City.  Before I went, I heard a lot of comments about how it’s just not all that great.  Hanoi seems to get everyone’s vote.  Maybe they are right, but that doesn’t matter because I had a great time in HCMC and still don’t know any different.  I loved HCMC, and I would go back in a heartbeat.  Everywhere we went, the food was indescribably good.  I’d take Vietnamese food over Thai food any day.  We also did a really fun cooking class, and a scooter/eating tour of the city.  We stayed at the Riverside Hotel, which was nice, but I wouldn’t splash out that kind of money again.  We also ate twice at the highly acclaimed Hoa Tuc restaurant.  I wanted to like it, as it’s the most popular place in town, but it really didn’t take the whole dinner experience to the next level.  I also got the feeling that every tour group in HCMC eats at this place every single night.  I’m going to go all Anthony Bourdain next time I’m there.

New and Old

At a Chinese New Years party someone gave me a $100 note.  Unfortunately, I had to burn it.  Was it real?  Now I’ll never know.

Not sure what these funny hats are all about.
