How to take a nap in Vietnam. Plus, a video!

11/13/10

We were impressed to see this guy completely out on a busy street in HCMC. The business next door was receiving a large delivery, cars and scooters were honking away as they drove down the street, and there were lots of pedestrians passing him on the sidewalk. I wish I could nap like this!

Here's a video Jeff took of traffic outside of Ben Thanh Market, to give you an idea of what traffic in HCMC is like and what crossing the street is like. The locals say that some tourists "dance" with traffic because they jump off the curb and back on, hesitating to cross the street. You just have to take a leap of faith, as Jeff likes to call it.

  4. @Krystal, I totally wish I could make a pumpkin pie, except we don't have an oven!! It is common not to have one. A lot of folks go out and buy supersized convection ovens. I think I'm going to cave and buy one, too. I want to bake cookies!

  5. That guy sleeping looks so uncomfortable!

    The video is great-I can see the dance image- I am sure I could not cross without a few backsteps myself!
