So my day started at 3am getting to the airport for my first budget airlines of Asia and let me just say Continental as alot to learn from these guys! Anyway that's another story, got in line to get my seat and this very nice girl behind me started to talk to me (pre-coffee I might add!). It was so nice to start up my journey with a friendly face. We ended up sitting with each other on the plane and taking the cab ride into the city together. After the cabbie tried to drop me at the wrong hostel (of course a sceme...doesn't he know he's dealing with the LT), i walk up and Derek (my travel buddy) is sitting there on the porch waiting for me...couldn't have worked out any better (well my phone could be working that would be nice). We walked around the Old Quarter enjoying the local sights and then had some pho (Vietnamese soup). Today we are off to do some of the sights and will probably move on from the city pretty quickly as it's pretty stressful when you spend most of your day crossing roads without traffic signs or rules.
