First trip to Vietnam

From the Bach Dang Hotel – Ho Chi Minh City

     Met Axel at 9:30.  Was not in good spirits because of money situation and was a bit nervous at the prospect of being in another Morocco.  All of a sudden I missed my girlfriend and was a bit nervous to leave Japan!  We got to the airport and off at terminal #2.  We thought we made a mistake and went to terminal 1.  Then we realized we were right and had to go back to terminal #2.  Got on Malaysian air and the first thing I noticed were the colors of their uniforms which I thought were horrendous but the stewardesses were beautiful. 

The light was a long one and when we arrived I was nervous and thought I was going into a poor country.  The airport was spectacular complete with a starbucks and Sabarros.  I really didn’t want to go into the city because we didn’t have much time and was nervous.  We went into ChinaTown and it was packed and full of excitement.  —  plane noticed the immigration cards said “Be forewarned Death for drug trafficers under Malaysian Law.”  We strolled through the jammed marketplace and found a  restaurant/bar called “Halo Club” 海snail.” 

They accepted credit cards and prices were reasonable.  Not long after a Chinese woman said some workers were working on the electric lines and the club might lose power early.  We chatted for a bit and she said she was a singer in the band.  Her band was playing onstage not long after.  We had another drink and then went back to the hotel.  The woman were all very cute!  I really liked Malaysia!  Coming to Vietnam I was nervous again.  At customs, the official questioned me about my passport picture.  When I changed money I got a huge stack of bills and was nervous again.  I didn’t want to carry all that money.
