I somehow finally make it to the office in one piece and not a moment too soon, I was told I had just missed the hungry lunch crowd this must be my lucky day. After settling down, lunch was on the next agenda. My first introduction to authentic Vietnamese food, beef noodles.
The flavoring is not as strong as the ones available back home but the presentation, side dishes and condiment accompanying the noodles is somewhat different, I actually like it.
In the afternoon it was back to the office to have a discussion for tomorrow’s assignment, which took the better part of the day. Evening was a real culture shock, I was taken to have dinner in a Czech beer house, in the middle of urban Ho Chi Minh City, being serve Vietnamese food and imported Czech beer with German sounding beer drinking songs being played in the background.
All things must come to an end and I had to make my way back to Kuala Lumpur the next evening.
