Day 1: Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City
dve at the airport (tan son nhat) aboot 8:45am on the 8th of September flying via Singapore. I step out of the airport and it is hot like this lemon and lime drink that I currently drinking thanks to Jen. So there I am sitting there outside the airport waiting for that gangster Paul Lincoln Chamberlain, who arrives aboot 15mins later with bike bag in hand and that trademark humour of his.
We put our xe dap (bikes) together for the ride into the city. Everybody is staring at us and our little xe dap. We make the perilous journey into HCMC. The traffic is crazy! We arrive at our hotel in District 1 then we go for a ride. Meeting up with Ga con trai – Tanh Ga – Chicken Boy. We also meet up with the other riders, graff artists, skaters and tattoo artists in Cong von hoa park. Xe dap parts are given out and put on xe dap. Also Freestyle now stickers. Thanks to Shaun Jarvis for parts and stickers!!!
Flatland riding starts at 3:30pm over the road from Notre Dame Cathedral. The riders here are straight out gangsters ripping the ground to pieces. The session ends at 10pm. From there we head to a bar but I don’t make it – Well I do – but my xe dap doesn’t. . Sau (6) spokes out of the front wheel ripped out of the rim cracking it. Peg into wheel accident. Leaving no chance of using the rim again. So we make it to the bar for a chat and drink then head back to the hotel for a good nights sleep.
Thai Binh (peace).
