Leaving Saigon

Despite all the gloom inspired by Vietnamese history, we visited the local market, Ben Thanh Market for dinner. Everything was very reasonable, so I tried to stuff myself with a couple of seafood dishes. Needless to say I failed in the stuffing department, but I was content. Afterwards I wandered the markets avoiding the fashion suggestions of Sabrina, Rebecca and Yung.

As it happens I resolved the broken cd player problem to a degree, buying a cheap portable mp3/cd/dvd player. It is pretty difficult to navigate music wise, has a short battery life and is clunky, but it plugs into the tv, reads dvds (including burnt files) and works. Of course I naturally stayed away from those very cheap, totally illegal dvds they sold in the same department store. I especially stayed away from Tom Twyker's new film 'Perfume' and Edward Norton in 'The Illusionist'. If I had them I would probably watch them in the next few days.
