Ever since we left Vietnam we have continued to talk about the days we scooted around the city on our Honda Waves. We learned how to drive like the Vietnamese - run red lights, drive up one ways, honk excessively and drive on sidewalks when there was a lot of traffic. You know, everything that our US drivers education course taught us was illegal. It had been five years since I shifted gears and scooted but it was just like riding a bike (pun indented) and before I knew it we were in the thick of the traffic on Hai Ba Trung Street.
I think I can confidently say that driving motorbikes in HCMC will be my favorite part of our two week trip in South East Asia. I mean, I bought a selfie stick for this exact moment.
