I feel I should post for important events in my life so that I remember, I am traveling again, in Ho Chi Minh city Vietnam right now. It’s been a while since we’ve been here, about a year, one of my many favorite destinations of Asia. My memory is so terrible that I had forgotten Australians need a visa to come here, Singaporeans don’t. My wife thought these things were in train but enquired about it the night before flying. I tried to arrange a visa online at 3 in the morning, just 8 hours before our flight. After repeatedly calling and emailing the visa provider we finally spoke to someone about an hour before our gate closed at the airport. I then received a required document via email about 15 mins before the gate closed, it was necessary to have this document of visa approval to board the plane. Amazingly we are here now in Ho Chi Minh about to go to an old favourite haunt, the Continental Hotel for a Vietnamese coffee. We are staying across the road at another good hotel, the Caravelle.
