    • Thanks,Nancy. You won’t catch me on one these days whatever the weather. When I was in HCMC, my hosts decided that it would be great for one of them to take me out for a night tour on his motorbike. I politely declined (citing that my medical/travel insurance wouldn’t pay in the case of an accident, which they probably wouldn’t). I’ve got two sisters-in-law who have been in a whole world of pain from crippling motorbike accidents.

    • Yes, it does rain a lot there, Charles. I sat at this cafe at an intersection for ages taking photos – it went from a bright sunny day to a wild thunderstorm in the blink of an eye, and then continued pelting with rain. The riders are prepared and the colourful rain jackets appeared within seconds of the first drops and everyone who stopped at the intersection eyed the sky. πŸ™‚

    • It’s very much a way of life for them, and there are many more bikes than cars. I saw bikes with up to four people on them. Some ride with no helmets (often the children for some strange reason).

  1. I recall seeing a family of five at side a scooter in Ho Chi Minh City with the youngest asleep with their head on the speedo … they all looked kinda comfortable too πŸ™‚
