The Coffee is so good in Saigon; I find it hard to not have at least two a day. Before starting the dayâ€™s adventure, Kevin drove us to a cafe he knows by the Notre Dame cathedral, called â€œAu Parcâ€. We had great coffee and were quickly on our way to meet friends in District 2. In order to get to District 2, we drove over the Saigon Bridge along with about a thousand other motorbikes. Our friends, Tim and Magalie, have recently moved from France to Vietnam with their two daughters-Niko-Linh and Suzanne. They live in a big house in a beautiful residential neighborhood. Very close to their home, Magalie recently opened a childrenâ€™s clothing store, named â€œLittle Anh-Emâ€ where she sells unique clothes she designs for kids.
After a visit to a local French school where Niko-Linh dances and we had a great lunch at â€œMekongâ€, we said goodbye and drove back for another meeting at â€œHighlands CafÃ©â€. Kevin was starting to feel sick so we headed back to the hotel for some R&R but not before getting the local remedy for every sickness- pho bo (beef noodle soup)!
