Sweaty and confused in Saigon
This time last year I was stumbling jetlagged and bleary-eyed around the frantic streets of Ho Chi Minh city.
Whilst I love to walk in a city, I’ll never forget the death-defying road crossings through motorbike stampedes to get from the hotel near Tao Dan Park to the highest view point in town, the Bitexco Financial Tower.

Thankfully no motorbikes in Tao Dan Park!
I opted for the most expensive coffee in town so that I could sketch that great view of the Saigon River through the lazy afternoon smog.
How much is that coffee in the window?
I go misty over you
