Wednesday, Nov. 18th (Exploring Ho Chi Minh)

  • Spent the morning negotiating a 3 month Vietnam visa extension at the HCMC Department of Immigration and a couple of travel agencies
  • Wandered the city, checking out the Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica and the Saigon Central Post office as well as several small parks and side streets
  • Met up with a mutual friend for delicious DIY Vietnamese Barbecue at a place called 5KU Station.  Cooked bite-sized bits of ostrich, octopus, and pork over a mini, table-side grill, using chopsticks to flip and pick sizzling hot pieces of meat straight off the grill.  Worth every single bite.
  • Checked out a few bars and played some pool on Bui Vien street (backpacker central) to end the night.
