The deer, the wolf, the tiger and the owl: A local’s honest thoughts on Western expats here in HCMC, Vietnam.
Sophie swooped in on her motorbike and picked me up from work. A friend of mine called us “Hello Kitty’s Angels” because of my shirt.
Living proof that one can find some cool Vietnamese hanging around the backpacker area.
Sophie’s from Jersey (not NJ) and Anders is from Denmark (not Sweden). They’re both staying at my hostel and here’s what they have to say about life.
A quick look at some of the stuff I’ve been eating for the past couple weeks here in Saigon.
Vietnam’s no shopper’s paradise, but if you need something while you’re here, no need to spend too much. $3.50 (70,000 VND) for a t-shirt is a start.
Before I started my new job, I made it out to this turn-of-the-century colonial mansion to browse traditional and contemporary art.
I really like the guys running the place. Just not sure about south Vietnam long term. (I’m tired of constantly sweating.) Btw, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you’re someplace cooler than here.
Got tired of looking at that Obamney thing here at the top. So here’s a panorama I made last night from a rooftop restaurant where I was celebrating my NEW JOB with 2 friends I met. I start in just over an hour.
2-hour plane-ride, 1-hour visa & immigration, 30-minute taxi and 2-minute moped ride later… and I’m here!
