"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Posted in Travel by matt on Saturday, January 23, 2010

Oh ya. Um. So Cayla and I went to Vietnam awhile ago.

I know, I know. This is starting to seem like a lame travel blog (as opposed to a lame personal blog).

But put yourself in my shoes: you’ve got free time, and you find dirt-cheap plane tickets to a unique and exotic country that you may never be able to visit again. Not to mention you know you’ve only got about 5 more months in SE Asia.

You know you’d be travelin’ =D

We landed in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) 2 hours late, but our faithful pick-up guy had waited the whole time. He took us to our hotel, they gave us a map, and off we went to explore the city.

In my opinion, the city was like Bangkok’s cleaner, less-interesting cousin. It was getting out of the city that we enjoyed. So we booked 2 all-day excursions to see the countryside and enjoy a little clean air.

Instead of going into detail about what all we did, I’ll just direct you to my Flickr feed, where you can read and see simultaneously. Enjoy!
