Cycling In Saigon – Video Post

Oh the joys of modern day travel. Not so long ago if the gutsy traveler wanted to send news home he or she had to wire telegrams, send letters in diplomatic bags or carry home cumbersome film rolls to be developed. Today the modern journeyman can email, video, photograph on gadgets that fit in the tightest of pockets. Many would are this is against the spirit of travel, and at times I agree but with rain lashing the windows here in Ho Chi Min City here is my first attempt at a video and I only hope they get better.
