Itook a few photos while out meandering today. I can’t give any description of them because I don’t really know what they are. A huge storm came through here this afternoon. Some people died in the northern part of the country earlier this week when a storm came in off the ocean. One major difference between Saigon and the rest of Vietnam is how common western franchises are here. When arriving here on the bus a few days ago it struck me that I had not seen a franchise except KFC anywhere else in the country.
