We, representatives of Western culture, do not have a habit of eating food, prepared on the street.

The logotype of a company called "Mekong Auto" features a striking resemblance to, uhm.. Audi?
Magnified the logo so you can take a better look at it. READ MORE »
Daytrip from Nha Trang on motorbikes. Unbeatable memory of the day is the salt farm workers, carrying salt bags under melting midday sun. I'll try to never again complain about my salary or difficult working conditions - there are always people in worse situation. READ MORE »
