My trip was awesome despite 1) stepping in a pile of dogshit with my white as snow Adidas sneakers the day after I arrived, and 2) people assuming Anita and I were having some kind of marital problems (because apparently there is no possible alternate explanation for why we wouldn't have gone together).
The trip's main purpose was to attend my uncle's wedding (pictured below), but also encompassed eating too much food and drinking too much beer (I gained 8lbs in my first 8 days there), taking tons of street photos, watching beautiful sunsets, impromptu bottle flip contests, exploring many local markets, and otherwise just hanging out with my relatives. Good times.
Sunset on the beaches of Phu Quoc Island.
Drinking beer the Vietnamese way: warm, with a chunk of ice in it.
Drinking beer the proper way: draft, craft, and cold on tap.
Who knew there was such a selection of interesting craft bia (beer) in Ho Chi Minh?
Because OF COURSE seahorses are for making liquor... right?
Street shooting - a mobile vendor hawks Baos (steamed buns) off the back of his moped.
I can never get enough of the sights and sensory overload of local fish markets.
Thai Ice Cream rolls.
This has to be one of my favourite photos, EVER. My mom (far left) looks like she's having so much fun!
