Vietnam - Saigon

20. November 2009 Ben Luc to Saigon / 27 km / Total 1361km
We had an early start and left Ben Luc at 06:00. After 27km in absolut mad traffic we arrived in Saigon at 08:00. Just the perfect time for a heavy Irish breakfast with fried eggs, beans, bacon, potatoes and fried tomatoes. We checked in at a Hotel in the Pham Ngu Lao region. (The Backpackers ghetto from Saigon).
Early morning ride into Saigon or HCMC. Monicas is wearing her mask as many locals do as well.
