21/6/2014 – Saigon
Went on a motor bike trip to the can gio mangrove forest. The drivers were excellent and made the day enjoyable. They are trying to develop and preserve the mangroves. It was almost totally destroyed by agent orange during the war and they are regenerating it. A little bit touristy. Visited a bird sanctuary, bat sanctuary and teased the crocodiles with fish finger sized pieces of fish from a boat. Riding through the traffic was mayhem, more than Uganda, but much more organised, everyone just seems to give way to each other, totally the opposite to Ug. It poured rain just as we were having lunch, but mostly we stayed dry. Saw shrimp farms, swallow farms, swallows have a better house than the owners in many cases. Went for a quick 5 min walk when we got back, got us lost and it was 35 mins before we found out destination. Burger king for tea.
