Next Stop, Saigon
Shauna and I have been living in Saigon since September and we love it. We landed in the conservative city of Hanoi. Vietnam is different than any of the other 20 plus countries we have visited. Vietnam was going to be our next home. We spent the next few weeks making our way down the coast of Vietnam from Hanoi to Saigon. (The younger generation refers to the city as Ho Chi Minh City and the older generation calls it Saigon.) We have visited more than 16 cities in Vietnam and each place has their own reason to sparkle. I personally feel that it sucks to be a tourist in Saigon. The rest of the country is better for someone coming to spend his or her time in Vietnam. However, I do feel that Saigon is the best place to live because once you settle down you will have a different appreciation for the city.
