Careful there! So many electrical wires!
Rex Hotel. Dammit, I never had a drink on the patio!! However, I did get a Swedish massage at the hotel thanks to The Gastronomer.
Old houses in District 5.
Line of vendors lined up, selling ... I don’t know what. I always meant to try it but never got around to it.
Vegetarian thali at our favourite Indian restaurant, Mumtaz, at 226 Bùi Viện. I’ve had many thali‘s and this is one of the prettiest! The Boyfriend and I ate there every few weeks!
Bánh mì thịt bò nướng, fancied up (and the price showed it!)
Bánh cam Vendor.
Can you say traffic?
Family friends from Montréal in front of city hall.

My cousin L’s twins! Aren’t they cute?
