Asia Diaries: Saigon, Vietnam

Three books, five "This American Life" episodes, one stopover in Taipei, and sixteen hours on a plane later, I'm in Saigon, Vietnam. It all feels familiar since it's only been a year since I've been here. Traffic is still crowded and frantic with motorcycles, cars, bicycles, and carts trying to dodge each other, the pollution is still prevalent because of this, and the humidity is still relentless.
