city. BBQ along water and dip in the pool not pictured. The pool guy
came up to me after I moved on of pool chairs so there was space for 3
of us to sit. You might think he was coming to help. But he told me to
move it back. I asked why. He said so there would be 2 chairs together
like the others. But no one was using them and there were three of us
I said. Where should one of us sit? Over there he said. After a bit of
this we just ignored him and he went away. It's a heirarchial thing I
suppose and he's supposed to enforce the rules and not consider other
possibilities. Rules are rules. At least he was kind enough to let it
go. Drying the towel on the side wall wasn't allowed though. At all.

that she buys your junk- I think. She's wearing working pjs. The guy
in front has a rooster he's been training to fight. I saw him teaching
it later today with another cock. He doesn't seem to do anything else
but drink coffee. And beer of course. Vietnam is suposedly #2 in beer
consumption world wide per capita after Thailand.

are both common sights and i'm not sure why people still burn trash.
The trashmen pick up trash regularly and sort it at the same time,
opening each plastic bag and separating the insides on the spot.
he's an architect who helped design the bkk airport. It took 10 years
to design. It takes forever to walk to the gate- after passing 100
food and shopping places. The whole place is covered in glass- so
close to the equator?! It's hot as hell in there. A/c can't compete
with sun. Terrible design. 2) he said don't drink Leo beer or Chang
beer. But Singha is ok.
This is our gate area. Took at least 20 minutes to walk to plus the 15
minutes we spent eating.

trashcans- just out in plastic bags. I've noticed that the trash men
in this area have motorized trucks or motorcycles. But in go vap they
mostly walk and push carts down the street, with little lateens at
night. Very clean overall. But still in need of clean up around
waterways and many other areas.
