As mentioned previously, there’s tens of thousands of scooters here in Saigon – it’s the one and only way to get around the city and tomorrow we shall be taking our lives in our hands by hiring one and hitting the streets – hopefully not literally hitting the street!
The scooters are used by families, sometimes four or five family members on the bike, it’s like the British Army’s White Helmets at times! They’re used as taxi’s, used for ferrying anything from live pigs to huge bags of rice and everything and anything else that can be strapped to the back. They’re sometimes used for sleeping and very occasionally as a fashion adornment…
