Vietnam - the rest of the story
Now if only their traffic laws were a little bit stricter. They have lights, but past that it's every man/car/scooter for himself. The tip we received for crossing the street on foot says it all - no one will stop to let you cross, so just start walking. Don't go too slow or you'll get hit. Don't run or you'll get hit. Just walk and everyone will go around you.
As scary as it sounds, it worked every time.
Welp, that's the end of our vacation adventure.
Esther - thank you for setting all this up and putting up with me on this trip. I know I'm not as adventurous as you, so thanks for taking it easy on me. Also, thanks for being excellent at bartering. There were many times when I thought we'd have to walk away from something I loved - but you did it every time.
Mom and Dad - thanks for watching the pup for me for so long and thanks for treating her how I would treat her (by spoiling her). I'll make it up to you someday - like when you need a place to have a good meal when your kitchen is being redone (yup, cat's outta the bag on that one). You might have to do the cooking (especially if you want something edible) but I'll be happy to provide the kitchen!
