Crazy traffic

Pagodas on tops of buildings

Intricate work on the pagodas.

We had a relaxing breakfast at our hotel. Packed and checked out by 10:30. The ride ride to the Danang Airport was short. This city is a major trading port which is quite modern and has a lot of new buildings being constructed. The airport is modern as well. We watched fighter jets take off and land on a shared runway. It was so cool and noisy! There was a Burger King and so Paul had 2 burgers while I enjoyed a chocolate sundae. Our Flight to Ho Chi Minh was delayed by half hour since the airplane had not arrived. We got to Ho Chi Minh by 3:16. The flight took almost 1 hour. We were told to be careful with our belongings due to pick pocketers and theives. Our room has a safety deposit box but it is not bolted to anything and could easily fit into a back pack! After we checked in and freshened up, Liang took us for a walk around the city. It is beautiful at night. It's all lit up but there are so many vehicles on the roads that crossing is a challenge. There are some traffic lights which helps out a bit. Everyone on a motor bike is wearing a helmet here. And we see more western clothing on the younger generation. We had a group dinner and then a few of us went out for a few more beers before we retired for the nights.
