    March 30, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    Nachdem wir uns den Verkehr jetzt einige Zeit als Beifahrer und Fußgänger angeschaut und die Ordnung in dem Chaos gefunden haben, sind nun auch wir unter die aktiven Verkehrsteilnehmer gegangen. Auf dem Roller, so sagte man uns, ist man sicherer unterwegs als zu Fuß, zumindest hat man damit eine Hupe und kann auf sich aufmerksam machen.
    Zukünftig werde ich mit dem Roller zur Arbeit fahren, während Franzi weiterhin auf ihren ökologischen Fußabdruck achtet und sportlich mit dem Rad zur Arbeit fährt!

    Saying Goodbye

    January 18, 2020 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Plötzlich ist es Mitte Januar. Plötzlich ist es so weit dass wir uns verabschieden müssen. Noch ein Mal werden in gewohnter Manier alle Freunde zusammen gebracht um mit leckerem Essen die gemeinsame Zeit zu genießen! Unsere Vermieter nehmen dies zum Anlass das vietnamesische Neujahrsfest mit zu feiern! Es wird so viel aufgetischt, dass selbst die Hunde bald keinen Hunger mehr haben und trotzdem noch essen übrig ist...
    Ein schöner Abschied von einem Ort, der genau durch diese Menschen ein bisschen zu unserer Heimat geworden ist!

    Ho Chi Minh City Vinpearl Landmark 81

    May 4, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 36 °C

    How nice to spend some time at the swimmingpool and what a marvellous view from here! Relaxing time. A nice drink and fine weather. After this we went back to our room. Anneke went to the beauty section (afterwards it appeared to have her nails done) and I watched tv and took some more pictures of the room and tried to figure out the functions on the tablet. When she came back she told me we both would get a nice massage tonight. 'You can keep your pants on' she said to me. In the evening we strolled along all the shops and visited a restaurant in the hotel complex. We tried to visit the highest floor in the building but it was very expensive so we decided not to do that.Read more

    The massage. How we laughed. It started while entering the massage room and we kept on laughing while being massaged. At a certain point we felt so relaxed and became a little more serious and it was very nice. They gave us a face mask with all sorts of nice smelling soft creams and rubbed our chest, face, schoulders and arms. Then we were escorted back to the changing room feeling brand new again and so much younger.Read more

    Ho Chi Minh City Vinpearl Landmark 81

    May 5, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

    A very beautiful park in a busy city an ocean of silence and peace. Well maintained by gardeners. A lot of green, trees, flowers and even a pond with koi carps. Spots to sit and statues and nice places for children to play. All to be found along the river. We couldn't get enough of it but we had to go back to the hotel to check out.Read more

    Ho Chi Minh City AEon Shopping Mall

    May 5, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

    Back to Coen and Loc again. For us the 'Three Bells Church' was our orientation point to find their house again because it was nearby. In the evening we went all together to a huge Japanese shopping mall called AEon. Here I found my Vietnamese 'little brother' (a doll at the children's department). Anneke, Coen and Loc spent a lot of time at the ATM's. Anneke and Loc were busy with clothing and Coen and I were looking around at the electronics department (huge smart screen televisions). After doing some shopping at the supermarket over there we went to the restaurant near the entrance and here also I saw my 'little Vietnamese brother', this time a real one. It was a little boy who sat on the table and knew how to make us all laugh each time he took a bite of his ice cream. His chin was all covered with soft ice. After this 'free entertainment' we went back to the house of Coen and Loc. Loc immediately started to clean the house again and provided us without asking with drinks and something to eat. Loco had well guarded the house, no burglars. Later that evening the neighbour from the opposite house also visited us. Drinking a beer he said 'happy New Year' everytime. We had to laugh about it because we are in the month of May, but for the Chinese a new year had just begun. You could still see the decoration in the shops and on the street and in the hotels.Read more
