The Scooters of Ho Chi Minh City

I have no doubts that there are more scooters in Vietnam than flies in Australia. I tried to capture a bit of the traffic madness that left me stranded on a traffic circle for 30 minutes, until eventually I said an odd number of prayers and crossed with my eyes closed. Otherwise Ho Chi Minh City (better known as Saigon) is a great city with boulevards and cafes where one can happily indulge in a kick-ass Vietnamese black coffee ... safe from the traffic. In the Paris of Asia.
