Another Rainy Day in Saigon


Last Friday I headed to District 1 to meet some friends for lunch. On the way, I had to endure a downpour during a thunderstorm. Luckily I had my rain poncho but it was not enough to keep my lower legs and feet dry. Normally during a downpour, most riders get off their motorbikes and seek shelter. I actually like to ride in the rain since it is warm compared to the rainfall back in Seattle. Still, the rain could have played a part in me being sick Friday night until yesterday (^_^)

  1. Trang thinks I am crazy for liking the rain in Vietnam. 🙂

    It is nearly 85 every day here in San Diego and it is *almost* warm enough that she stops complaining about being cold. Soon it will be 90-100 every day and perhaps then she will finally be happy!

  2. Not living there now. We left last September after over ten years in the country – it was a big part of our life. While I absolutely do not miss the weather in Vietnam – never could not stand the humidity and heat – I do have a soft spot for a really good rainstorm and getting completely soaked in warm rain 🙂
