Early this week I had to do some errands and found myself in an alley along Nguyen Thi Minh Khai.
The thing with alleys here in Saigon that these are actually gateways to communities. And we’re not talking about a handful of houses. No sirreeee!
So with the address in my hand, I stepped into the unknown. Halfway through, the house number on my paper just didn’t jive with all the house numbers I was seeing!
I’m slightly claustrophobic and as the hems got narrower and narrower, I was kinda panicking. The hem can fit 2 motorbikes at first but check the end of the photo below. That can only fit a person!
It was intensified by the fact that I may not be able to retrace my steps back. 😛 That’s why I started taking photos! LOL.
But as always, in Vietnam, I found solace that the people are friendly despite the language barrier. I approached a school girl who was with a friend and who was obviously in a rush. Did she leave me? NO! She helped me go ’round and ’round the hem asking people for me. She is an angel!
With her with me, we found the place in no time!
Thanks em! That was an adventure! 😉
