Why traffic is worse than it could be

This is also why sewage and rain water flood streets at times. They're
just now putting in underground waste management in our area. Progress
is rather quick though. About two 30-50? Meter sections at a time on
one street. Then move the barricades up.

Construction site

Build your own housing while you build hotel. Just like in the
reeducation camps.

Best home delivery service

Ordered some fresh hu tieu mi from lady down street and she delivers
in bowl on tray with chopsticks and the whole shebang. Later she comes
to pick up. Only delivers within short walk.

River crossing in Cambodia

Using Angkor to sell cigarettes. Next thing you know it'll be the
Great Wall. Oh, I think it's been done.

Scarves in phnom penh

I made a few purchases.

Texas spicy beef no more

It was torn down today. Was told a vk from Houston started it but
didn't do well I guess.

Mask upside down

Coffee heaven

Long nail

This taxi driver was cool. Just look at his long thumb nail. We asked
why he had it so long and he said he used it for stuff, like picked
and scratching. Actually, his whole left hand had long nails.

Cool karaoke place

Rat traps and smelly armpit solutions

Better name than Sloggi?

Hmm. I might have put more thought into that name. Sloggi isn't very
sexy sounding is it?

Three's company

Squid with garlic

Squid on the fire

Grilled quail

This guy said if the cops came he'd need to bolt. Doesn't pay rent and
not legally selling it. I didn't want one but Linh did. She said it
was pretty good. I was kind of grossed out when I saw him cutting it
up with scissors, especially the head/ neck. What can I say- I'm a
city boy.

Funeral flowers

One of many sets of flowers for a neighbor. Must be important as all
are from big wig companies. Delivered by moto of course.

Print shop near house

No zoning here.

Oil change

Honda has a nice bike shop nearby. My bike getting oil change. Next
need wash, but why? It always rains.

Shopping bill Inc moto parking

Surprised to see that our bill included motorbike parking 2000
dongers. What if we took a taxi? And why did the attendant take 2000
from me if I already paid? I guess I need to show the receipt next
time. Big C.

Dragon fruit farms on way to mui ne

Mui Ne so close to Saigon

Still hard to believe this is so close to Saigon.

Nice place we found with a beach in Mui Ne. 5 hour train from Saigon.

Rushing thru the rain

The only way to turn left is to head straight at 'em.

Rainbow over black canal

How fitting. A rainbow over the black canal, as it's know to the
locals. We call it something less flattering.
