Most of my time in Ho Chi Minh City was spent at my hostel getting things in order for the upcoming months.

I did stumble upon a Sunday night market on Pham Ngu Lao Street which was great! It is difficult to cross roads in the city because of the sheer volume of motorbikes. As a result, you just have to start walking across the road slowly and even-paced. The motorcyclists will just make their way around you.

A lot of meat is made into sausage and other processed meats varieties. I am always a little worried that I’m eating dog.

I met Yến-nhi (pronounced Yenni), an American-Vietnamese woman, in my hostel. We explored the city center one afternoon together. She is also in marketing, so it was great to converse about event planning and business, especially the prices of certain items in Vietnam.
