Well, we made it after about 16 hrs on two planes. Bronwen, the Saigon intern, and I are in the city and walking round. First stop was Ben Thanh market for some yummy phá»Ÿ.
On the way here, I brushed up my written Vietnamese and met the President of Pepe Jeans London. He’s a young entrepreneur type who just happened to sit beside me on the Hong Kong — Saigon flight. He gave me some tips on how to ensure that I get a job here after I’m done with the internship and talked bout the fashion industry too. Pretty cool.
Will continue to update….ciao for now 🙂
