"Mo-ped country" Thanh Pho Ho Chi Minh by Thumbee

Went to Vietnam over 5 days in May...during the Golden Week holidays here in Japan.
What a place! Making your way around the city with the mopeds over-riding every space there possibly can be in a narrow strip of a country that is Vietnam. That Ho Chi Minh City was celebrating its 50th anniversary of independence didn't help, of course....
And if you thought Japan is anti-English-speaking, think again. Better still, go to Vietnam! Amazingly, their script is consists of the English alphabet with vietnamese accents attached. (waaaaay more complex than French, yes, but on similar lines) They lost their their language when the english-speaking missionaries came in.
Non-english speaking notwithstanding, they are among the friendlier peoples of the world.
Refreshing, esp when you live in Japan....which is relatively stuck up and would give the british stiff-upper lip a run for its money.
