Notes from The Road

Another Reason to Love Vietnam

Reason No. 237 to love Vietnam. Your motorbike runs out of gas at 2 a.m. because you bought one where the gauge doesn't work and the last time you had a look in the tank, hey, all was well. After a few "oh no" shudders and a short bike hike, a taxi driver stops and you explain in broken Vietnamese that you're "Khong xăng!" But he's already got it. Out of juice. And the bastard pulls a giant Sprite bottle full of gas out of his trunk and loads up your tank. He won't take more than $1 for it, either. Bro hugs.

Gotta love the Good People.

Cảm ơn Vietnam.
