Ho Chi Minh City is Enthralling, Captivating and Mysterious

Another day on foot wandering this city. A new coffee house this morning for a few vietnamese coffees and some eggs and toast. Then I was off on foot for the day.

The usual thing of turning left, then right and left again was the usual goodness but I guess I am learning my way around a bit better because I see certain landmark things like this co-op store and I kinda sorta know where I am without the google maps. But it really is so handy having the cell phone service! Yesterday I topped up the service and got a discount so I am good for another month here in Vietnam. I really use the service a lot not only walking around, reading in coffee shops, but also tethered because sometimes the homestay wifi gets bogged down so I switch over to sharing my LTE connection. Works like a charm!

Anyways, here are a few things from the walk today. The sky started darkening a bit so shooting all day at F/8 with autofocus if you’re interested.

Just as I was a few hundred feet from my homestay, the sky started darkening considerably and I could feel a few rain drops testing my mettle. I did not have mettle with me so I went back to the room.

All in all, a really nice day capped with smiles! The darker sky really creates some nice moments when taking photographs I think.
