Bye Bye, Thailand

Day 70: Communism!

This morning, we bid farewell to Thailand and to Kyung. We took a taxi to Bangkok airport, which has the third largest airport terminal in the world! We checked in, had a quick breakfast, and then waited in the ridiculously long immigration line to get to our flight. It took so long that we almost missed our flight! Luckily, we got on the flight and made our way to our next destination: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – our first communist country on this trip!

We arrived and took a bus to town, thankful to have only a backpack each to carry! We had lunch at a restaurant with wifi so we could book a hotel for tonight. We booked one, walked over in the intense heat, checked in, and went to sleep for the entire day. Over the past two weeks, we haven’t been sleeping enough, and today it didn’t matter what country or what city we were in, we were sleeping as much as we needed to!

In the night, we walked around town, had dinner, walked around the night market, and then went back to the hotel to sleep! Our first day in Vietnam, and we had a great feeling about this country because the locals have been so nice so far!
