#461 ... Glimpses of Saigon

This photo in central Wellington reminded me of our time in Ho Chi Min and Vietnam in general ... the land of the motorbike. The rise in fuel prices has brought many more bikes onto the roads .. this parking area just off Willis Street would normally have 5 -10 bikes ... not so now

greece has a similar relationship with the motorbike - not a bad thing, but people are simply not careful enough on them

This reminds me of my island when he TT Road races are here. The whole island is given over the bike.
