Life on Two Wheels

Back in Manila, a friend was ranting how irresponsible the guy he saw on a motorbike with a 5-year old (she thinks) as backride while on a busy street. If you’ve been to Manila, you know that a motorbike is not the usual transportation. People there hasn’t gotten used to seeing motorbikes and cars sharing the same road. Unlike in Vietnam. photo 20140312_173310_zps8a7eac7f.jpgThis is the HOLD ON TO ME position. LOL.

If you think three’s a crowd, what about 5?

Some may look irresponsible but this is the way of life here in Vietnam. And it’s important to know that the speed limit in most streets is just 40kph. The bigger roads at 60kph.
