I can’t say we’ll miss Saigon (called Ho Chi Minh City).
I can’t even say that we’ve seen much of Ho Chi Minh City.
Honestly, we’ve spent 5 of the 6 days in our quiet hotel room working.
Ho Chi Minh City is a big loud crazy (dirty) city, and our hotel (Green Suites Saigon) has been literally an oasis in the city. We’ll do a proper write-up of the hotel in a separate post.
Every time we go out of our hotel, we’re reminded why we’re spending time in our hotel room.
1. We know we have good Internet and we are getting scheduled for the next few weeks on our sites
2. It’s quiet.
3. It’s air conditioned.
I can’t say we’ve given Ho Chi Minh much of a chance, but we’re both feeling just a little bit fried at the moment.
We have been on the move now for 8 weeks, and these past 5 days in HCM and the 10 before that in Hoi An have given us a chance to slow down a bit and just mellow out.
We did go to the largest Cao Dai temple in the world and see the Viet Cong tunnels at Cu Chi – where the Viet Cong lived during the American/Vietnam war.
That was pretty incredible. But more on that in a separate post.
It seems a shame to not have done more in Ho Chi Minh City, but I’m really excited about the amount of work I’ve been able to get done (and scheduled for the future) while we have been here at the Green Suites Hotel.
Today we’re headed to the Mekong Delta, something both Carrie and I have wanted to see for most of our lives.
We’re looking forward to it!
