Two of my best friends, Jessica and Shelly, flew all the way out here to visit me which made me ecstatic. They managed to get 10+ days off work so that I could show them around the country that I have been living in since July.
Knowing that I wanted to get them on the back of a motorbike their first night in Ho Chi Minh City, I arranged for us to go on a tour called XO Tours. The company has one female motorbike driver for each tourist and they take you all around the city to try various authentic Vietnamese food. It was a blast!
Food we ate included: Bun BO Nam Bo (a beef-noodle soup I frequently eat that work usually provides me for dinner)
Then we got try FROG and Goat :)
Finally- lots of shellfish and crab (I am the only who tried the food here since Shelly and Andy don't eat seafood, and Jess is allergic to shellfish) We were a hard group to please :) Luckily, they supplied us with all the beer we could drink.
Once the tour was over and we couldn't stuff any more food in our mouths it was time for KARAOKE!!!!!
