    Shawn, Nice pics of HCMC or Saigon. Those poor animals in cages. Had great beef noodles at Cholon Chinatown. Bring back memories. Cheers, SL

    On the HCMC page "is it OK to call HCMC Saigon", not widely known is that the area in the photo is in fact officially called Saigon, i.e. most of district one. One of the reasons that newspapers and mags have Saigon in their name

    Wow, wonderful pictures and writing. I'm just dying for my return to Vietnam again. Well, I'm suppose to be studying for finals but ...couldn't help myself. I would definitely come back for some detail reading of your travel pages.
