Blending in to get in.

Last year of summer 2015 in Vietnam, Me and Gio decided to stroll around Ho Chi Minh and see what other things the city has to offer, We even have a map to see where the tourist attractions are located, We decided to go to the Reunification Palace.

As we go near the gates we see that they were only partly open, There were also a group of old Chinese tourist by it. We automatically realized that they are in a tour and there might be a ticket we need to pay for the entrance to the museum. But you see me and Gio are kinda cheap. So we decided to just blend it, How hard is it to blend in with old Chinese dudes wearing same black shirts. I was wearing a bright neon pink and Gio wore gray. we don’t exactly look chinese either.

We slide in with them, walking casually playing it cool and when we were far enough we decided to move away from the group before their tourist guide notices to weird people tailgating them but sadly we were caught right then and there by the guard who was maybe eyeing us from the start. We just told him we didn’t know and left. We never saw the inside of the palace.

This is of course wrong and horrible and it was just a spontaneous decision that friends do on a daily basis. I highly recommend visiting this place when you visit Saigon.

  • Lost in the woods with a not so brillant photographer hahahha 🤭 jk! You alright!
  • Guess what magical place is giving me the biggest sepanx ever. Shirakawago is one of Japan’s the UNESCO world heritage sites. Definitely one of the places you need to visit in your lifetime. Feels like a fairytale.

  • This coffee was freakin $7 and im making the most out of it by taking a photo to comemorate this normal tasting $7 latte.
  • There are times when you’re short on height and you cant do anything about.
  • 2018 was full of stumbles and self realizations. It was surprisingly stressful and fun and busy at the same time. Hoping I could use 2019 to declutter and organize some parts of my life and how I would do things in life. 
I see this photo and remember how still and beautiful the water in this place is. It was also clear and reflective which sums up how my 2018 was. 
Anyway thanks 2018. I’ll definitely do better this year. 📸 @dhenderendhen
