Whilst we still have days to go till we launch into 2011, it’s not premature of me to call it [...]

July 13, 2009

The second part of the Ho Chi Minh eating tour sees us setting off for the Binh Tay markets in Chinatown. We decide to set off early and walk there leisurely before the humidity melts us and before we become sticky and irritated.
