Saigon or Ho Chi Min City

After breakfast we caught the tour bus and took a 2 hour road trip to Saigon ,and what a vibrant,exciting place this is..Streets full of hawkers trying their best to sell cheap tourist artifacts.The markets were amazingly full of anything!!Shoes,shirts,shorts ,figurines of all description,masks which I have bought to add to my home collection.I ccouldnt resist buying a large Vietnamese pointed hat .Going around the very tiny aisles in the market was very funny with young women wanting to rub my belly !! Christmas is still very evident here and the decorations around the streets is truly amazing.We visited the very French orientated Post Office and still has the look an aura of the early 1800,s Next I visited the HUGE Catholic church and a service was in full flow (NO lightening bolts were aimed at me throughout this session!) As we left at night time the town seemed to attract lots more people and the tiny motor bikes were out in force ! All the street Xmas decorations were illuminated and vendors were now selling all shapes and sizes of electrical wares For my daughter Jayne…as we travelled back to the ship street lights went out as the did in Beijing.Because we arrived back late we were treated to a very large Ship BBQ .Our tired boozing group is now reduced to SIX,nevertheless we still managed Happy Hour ( I think at this point the smoggy pollution is getting on my chest .BUT Annie is on top of that shoving more Pills into me!!) session finished at 12.30am
