Today I want to reach Ho Chi Min City: yesterday I had reserved a room in an hotel: normally I use www.hostelworld.



a Vietnam Biker



gum tree











a coffee…the bar was in a total restyling


the really first sign that I’m really closet o Ho Chi Min City : the neon of Metro





Lucky: I’m on the Dien Bien Phu Boulevard and it’s on my map: reach the hostel was easy



http://www.mymyarthouse.hostel.com/




check inn and luggage in the room



Game plan: now my vacation is more geographical: so I’d like to can come back in Hanoi with the bike. For this reason I can dedicate just some hours to visit Ho Chi Min City: I can go in the most interetsing points of the City: I can use my map







Luxury hotels are very common here…even my hostel at 4,8 € ( 6,2$) isn’t cheap















very quiet this girl under the Vietnam flag





kids can sleep in any situation



is a little bit late, but I found a mechanic to ch’ange the oil




Thursday 7 of June: I’ve got to remain focused on come back in Hanoi



The way back begins with a typical Vietnam day…rain





This time is better to ch’ange in good time my US dollar and in a bank



The security guard looks at me when I stopped the bike in front of the bank: ok I understand to take out my muddy clothes..ohh I can even take my shoes out. Outside the bank ther’re some slipper for the clients . Ok inside the bank nobody speaks english, but it isn’t a problem for a tourist that’s travelling for 3 weeks in Vietnam,,,but to avoid pronunciation mistake I’ve written a slip



In some minute I changed the $..the only strange thing was a man that from the moment I got in the bank to now always was looking at me:::mhh military police ?



With my dong I greet everybody and I’m ready to go to my bike, when the man touch my shoulder and point hes finger at my slippers...My slippers ? Ohh my God this are his slippers !!! I bow and give back the slippers: he waited I had finished.



This night I rest in Dak Song : very comfortable this little vietnamese cities: on the main road you can find everything: sleep, shops, mechanic, food.



In the little restaurant I’ve chosen this dish





In Vietnam is impossibile to avoid the social drinking



I’m fine with food, but the owner brought to me another dish and insit I taste it. This meat isn’t boiled : could be hare or rabbit. When I’m outside the restaurant I notice for the first time the neon...ok the second dish was’nt cow and so...
