Mai-

Thanks for all the bike posts capturing the bike culture of HCMC. This helps paint a picture of what the bike culture really is. Were these due to my previous request? If so much appreciated.

Do you ride a bike around HCMC?

@the one in sf - I've posted photos of people on bikes in the past, so no, not necessarily on your request. i meant to ride a bike in hcmc, but i got in a bike accident in siem riep and it spooked me. once i was over being spooked, i just decided it wasn't worth it (to buy a bike) with all the traveling i'm doing this month. crazily, i am even more hardcore than bikers in hcmc, i walk in 88 degr. F and 78% humidity. only really poor people walk (sidewalks are in a sorry state), so i'm constantly chased by xe om drivers. i'm pro-bike just not pro-accident or pro-spending money.

OK so a bit disappointed it wasn't due to my personal request (one can only hope right?)

Good for you for walking and yes I can relate to the bike accident issues. Do you and your housemates walk with you too? Just really curious are you all on a vacation of some sort?

BTW We are supposed to be having a heat wave this week here in SF - nearing 83.
