relaxing...at nice cafe

6days later,I came back to the Saigon. 12hours flight from Paris arrived at 5am. It was only 20hours stop-over.  Then I got the phone call from Chris. He came to the airport for sending his son to America at the 4am. He is always staying the place where is I can reach easyly it happen spontaneous.  So our joke became real, finally we met again at 5am:)

We were taking coffee at first because town were still sleeping...and we went taking breakfast! We ate a "pho" as breakfast like a local.  Still early time in the morning, we went to the markets. There are some cheaper markets. I wanted to but Vietnamese coffee for my mom and sister. And they have unique coffee filter which was made by stainless. I bought this one too:) Vietnamese currency VND were make me feel bothering always with too much zero.

lol

We visited the Independence Place. Quiet place...could make rest at the garden. My daughter already getting tired that time. It was very hot day,we were walking a lot...Chris was bringing us very nice cafe "La Fenete Soleit". Old building,narrow stairs and a bit dirty wall...But you will see very nice interior there if you open the door! We were spending the time a bit longer there for relaxing. Still having a lot of time until my flight.  We explored the city again, but not sightseeing. We found great massage chair at the department store!! Why not trying it :D

At the evening,we join Linh again. She brought us excellent restaurant which was visit when Brad Pitt couple came in Saigon:) The atmosphere are very lovely, I was afraid for the price...lol   Quality was very nice:)  Well,we return to Linh's hotel. Still had to wait my flight. Chris,I think it's so long day for you too...thank you for staying with us.  Finally,he brought us to the airport. Then what we saw..."Vietnam airline canceled to Osaka". Oh my god! There was typhoon in Japan so we had to stay a night more in Saigon. Lucky me there was Chris,he found cheap and good hotel for us. And next morning we left Vietnam...

What a long day...but it was calm day. Totally, I loved all days spent in Saigon.
I miss you,Saigon...

Sounds like a real adventure. I eat Pho atleast once a week in Dallas for lunch but never tried it as breakfast. The restaurants are not open for Pho in the morning. Been thru 2 typhoons in Bangladesh. Been on Rickshaws as well.
