Ho Chi Minh City or bust

We flew into Ho Chi Minh City last night at about 5pm just in time to get into traffic in the downtown area. I have never seen so many motorcycles on the road. They are some of the most fearless riders that I have seen. Granted these aren't the 1000cc monsters that they have in the US but none the less they will go fast enough to get somebody in trouble. Apparently the motobikes rule the road as it seemed that there were three lanes of traffic and only one of them was being used by regular cars. Not to mention that the direction of traffic is purely voluntary at places.
We are going on a walking tour of HCMC today and hopefully we will post some pictures when we get done. Ta Ta for now.
