Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Saturday, March 11, 2017
Today we are off to Vietnam. We have an easy morning, not too early so that helps. Time for breakfast and I am not too interested in food anymore. They have this delicacy called a "century egg" and it does not look appetizing. They take and egg and bury it for one month. Then they eat it and people in Asia seem to love it. When I first saw it, I thought it was a jello dish.
Need to pack up and checkout. We are flying Air Asia again and they are sucking the life out of me. Apparently it doesn't matter if you pay for heavy baggage, they will still tell you that your bag is too heavy. We have to fly back to Kuala Lumpur to get our connecting flight to Ho Chi Minh City. There was a lot of security to get on the Vietnam flight. We passed through the several screenings, even on the bridge to plane. When we arrived in Vietnam, I had to go through customs. I must not look like a drug smuggler because customs was a breeze for me. They looked at me and said, "ok".
We are all so tired but got checked in with warm welcome and juice cocktails from the Rex Hotel Saigon. I am ready for a bath and bed!
