A Few Random Shots | Vietnam

Hallo alle zusammen!

Diesmal ist der Blog-Eintrag auf Deutsch, weil wir versprochen haben uns abzuwechseln :-) If you want to read it in English, check out googles translate tool right here ;-)
Die Tage in Ho Chi Minh City waren sehr ereignisreich und wir haben uns einiges angesehen und sind viel rum gelaufen. Von China town, zu den alten Sehenswürdigkeiten, bishin zu den modernen Neubauten, eine interessante und pulsierende Stadt im Wachstum! Besonders mitgenommen hat uns der Besuch im “War Remnants Museum”! Die Bilder und Informationen über den Vietnamkrieg sind erschreckend und lassen einen die Grausamkeiten des Krieges nochmals bewusst werden.

First Impressions | Ho Chi Minh City | Vietnam

It has began! We started our trip around the world (TATW) Thursday evening from Munich. The flights were quiet and even Carmen did “enjoy” them somehow :-)
The taxi drive from hcmc airport whereas was marked by traffic jam. How come that we stuck in TJ’s again after this season :-) but this time we got to see a lot more interesting things than on the A8. The traffic is crazy! We probably saw a million scooters and motor bikes. We never saw a traffic like that before even though India is louder here are much more people on the street.

The hotel is very nice, clean and the crew is super friendly. Our room does not have window but we are not spending much time in there anyway. We ended the tripday with some beer just next to the hotel.

Today after breakfast we went out for a photowalk. No special targets besides the market so we were walking blind in downtown enjoying the city and taking some pictures. We like this city a lot already, its modern, clean and people are very friendly. Lotsa things to see.
Here are some shots from our photowalk today and do not miss the special assignment we had ;-)
All the best from Vietnam
