Coffee break at Saigon


A coffee break at early morning of our 1st day of  Saigon.

Finally chaos is over. Finally we can be relieved from life as a prey. 

This old lady was very kind to us. At 1st thought, "Is she kind to us because she wants something from us?"
I can't shake off that mentality of everyone is kind for a purpose after so many days around Vietnam.
Especially of what occur to us when we went to Sapa.

Nevertheless, she didn't ask for anything special other than to pay for our own coffee. 

She even told us the secret of Vietnamese coffee. 
Brew the coffee and left it frozen overnight!

As you see in the photo, coffee is pour out from a bottle and it is thick as malt.

With condensed milk and ice cube, and it is ready.




This coffee break is just a disguise of Hanoi.
Nightmare still continues in Hanoi!
2 person hit me in Saigon market!!!
