Day 20: Saigon

This morning, we went for a walk around the city, and on the way there we saw a funeral:







It all happened very quickly, all of a sudden the street was flooded with tons of a people walking after the coffin and playing some music with drums and stuff.

Oh, I'm not sure the decorated cars at the first photo have anything to do with the funeral...

From there we went to the market, did some shopping, I bought a DVD of "Stargate: The Ark of Truth" on a DVD store on the way, and on the way back we found a Falafel store:
(It even has a Hebrew sign!)



It's weird to be served Falafel with a fork and a knife...

People abroad have no idea how to eat Falafel. In Paris I saw this Falafel "store", and there was "Just Like In Israel!" in the title.

Needless to say the Falafel was nothing like home...

A good example would be the fact that we got the chips in a seperate closed bag with a plastic fork, and the thina was really bad!

Anyway, I really like looking at the pictures you're taking. They look awesome.

Thanks for the complements...

Actually, the Falafel tasted pretty good. (and the chips were inside the Pita).

Or are you avoiding weird food? ;)

Well... We eat local food too (mostly noodles, rice, fried vegetables, tofu), but other foods also (french fries, pasta, pizza, ...).

Come to think about it, I never photographed the local food... Hmm... I was probably too hungry to think about taking a photo. I was just so amazed to see a Falafel stand in freakin' Saigon, so...

We do a void meat, we only eat vegetarian food, for two reasons, first because I don't trust the way they store the meat, and I had the misfortune of going to the restroom in one of the restaurant and on the way I saw them prepare a dog for lunch... That was quite traumatic...
