Sometimes it's nice to be a tourist for a few days. It was nice to be able to speak English with people that I don't know, & it was nice to be able to be out past 10:00pm. I wouldn't want to do it all the time, but it was a nice change from the small but industrial town where I live now. I'm glad we went.

Katie & I went to Saigon on Sunday & Monday. We stayed the night in a backpacker hotel in the heart of tourist central for $15. We were surrounded by foreigners & tourist shops galore. There were restaurants of many different cuisines: Korean, Indian, Italian, American - even an English pub. We spent the day time shopping & the night time socializing at one of the bars there.
