5 million people live in Saigon, there are 4 million motorcycles. Motorcycles rule ! I hired a motorcycle driver on
the 2nd day in Saigon, and after I hopped on, I understood immediately what was like in Vietnam.
It seemed like everyone was in a rush, in fact, the culture is very relaxed here. It is just a routine traffic maneuver everyone
has to do to get from point A to point B. The rule of driving a motorcycle, DON'T shoulder check, TRUST all drivers behind you,
TURN as you wish to turn, PUT everything on the bike.
I spent enough time sitting on the back of the motorcycles observing riders in busy traffic, on highways and on dark and bumpy roads. Vietnamese
riders are possibly the skillfulliest in the world. You will be amazed when you see a 5'3" rider balancing a 200 lbs tourist and weaving through tight corners and alleys and avoiding pedestrians.
You may even see their creative ideas of carrying "cargos" on their bikes. I have seen refridgerators, live cow, live pigs and a family of 6 on motorcycles.
Two 10 gallons (80 Litres) of gasoline.
Awesome posture, how relaxed she is.
Hello, who is calling?
Team work. Driver holds one and drives, and passenger holds one and sits.
Just put them on the bikes, it will work.
Nice car seat for the baby ....
Your souvenir hats were delivered this way.
Typical family outing. I have seen a family of 6. 2 little boys standing in the front, then the father driver, and 2 young kids, and then the mom.
Refridgerator, I think it is at least 15 cu. ft.
Hold on, not for yourself, for the cargo with both hands.
We got cow, a baby cow, at least 250lbs
We got pigs ....live pigs.
Legal age to drive is 18, how old do you think she is ?
2 spongy cords and a propane tank, YES!.
Standing, can you imagine that ? Acrobat training ?
High heels with no heel-strap, not a problem !
Not only grocery, but also a big tree, for the tet (Vietnamese New Year)
