First Day in Ho Chi Minh

On arrival in HCMC I was very quickly subjected to the harrowing nature of the city's road network. Oh my! There's one rule here - "Out of my way!" Cars drive with seeming impunity through the street whilst bikes swarm everywhere, seldom stopping for the minor inconveniences of a red light or bus in the way. I first observed this from a bus, but shortly got to ride on the back of a scooter taxi as we searched for a currency exchange.

Time is short so I'll leave that as the fist story from yesterday for now; we're currently waiting in a tour centre for a bus to the Chu Chi caves, to learn about the jungle fighting in the war, explore some tunnels and then let off steam by shooting some machine guns!
