Before the Saigon Rain

Sunday afternoon in Saigon is always plagued with ‘potential’ rainstorms. On my way to District 1 from the Phu Nhuan District, I had to stop twice to put on my raincoat only to take it off a couple minutes later. When I parked in front of the Main Post Office in Saigon, I took these shots about 5 minutes before the downpour. Saigon is always beautiful during this time, very Seattle-like. πŸ™‚

Saigon is one of the most beautiful cities in the World!

    I can see that Kevin has been busy. Saigon looks so calm when there is nobody around. I’m surprise! It’s not so bad in the city.

  • Today was very peaceful but that was because it looked like it was going to rain πŸ™‚ One way to keep people in doors…

  • I certainly agree that Saigon is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, compteting even with San Francisco and Seattle. I can hardly wait to get back to HCMC in a week.
