With Tet fast approaching, the whole city is bustling with activity. Main roads are being decorated with pink and yellow blooms and Nguyen Hue St. is getting a major makeover for the Flower Festival! I can’t wait! I loved what they did last year!
The trouble though is that 2 lanes are closed along Nguyen Hue and so the traffic is pretty bad (but not Manila-bad). Traffic in the sense that the motorbikes and cars are all in one lane now and there is an endless stream of vehicles zipping by. For a non-local, this spells trouble because I really am not good dancing cha-cha with the motorbikes. It takes much, much longer now for me to cross the streets. 😦
Can’t wait for the holiday so I wouldn’t have to deal with crossing the busy streets!
