We have just spent two nights in Ho Chi Minh City (a.k.a. Saigon) and its been a fascinating experience.
Its quite mesmerising (to someone who hasn’t seen it before – like me) to watch busy intersections in Ho Chi Minh city and to observe the ballet vehicles and people crossing each others paths without a crash to be seen.
Today the mission was to travel from Chiang Rai (Thailand) to Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam).
A long flight today from India to Thailand – nearly 7 hours from getting into the aircraft to getting out of it.
This is a brief video providing a sense of what its like to drive down the street in Agra, India.
We spent today being tourists in one of the most popular tourism destinations in India: Agra.
Agra is home to the Taj Mahal – and that is what we were here to see. We also saw a number of other places along the way.
Sunday 26th August saw us flying from Muscat (Oman) to Agra (India).
Tonight we are in Agra, India. This is a brief note before I write a proper post about today.
A long day today, with a 6.6 hour flight to Muscat into somewhat of a headwind all the way.
Today we flew from Iraklion airport (Crete), to Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt), near the northern end of the Red Sea.
