All of us!
I got the air ticket for going to France by Vietnamese air line. It make stop-over at Ho Chi Minh City(Saigon). I know there is some TravBuddies. Why not have meet-up then! At first I contacted Linh who is living in HCMC. She accepted my offer and organized a meet-up together:) My travel are started at that moment already.
I arrived around 3pm at HCMC. I and my daughter rested a bit at the hotel. Our meet-up will start at 6:30pm. The place of meet-up was not far from my hotel.
We were following the map and sometimes asked local people on the street. But it confuse me because they said opposite to me. I called to Christian and he picked us up. Since that time he helped us anytime. Our meet-up was held at the Bi Saigon hotel which is Linh's office.
I recogniｚed Linh when we met for the first time. She was taking my hand it make us closer early. As I heard about it after,it's a habit as Vietnamese girls. I had same experience in South Korea too. Asian girls have nice habit :)
The meet-up in Saigon
There were a guy and 13 women. Vietnamese women are so cheerful I think. They are always make laughing and talking a lot! We took some nice local foods. There are TravBuddy and their friends...honestly I couldn't recognize all at that moment. But for sure they were all so friendly;)
We went to bar after dinner.
