Goodbye beating heart of Southeast Asia.
Goodbye flash thunderstorms, and flash floods.
Goodbye city of Ngoc Son Lake, Bach Ma Temple, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, and Water Puppetry.
Goodbye countless hotels, hostels and free wifi. Goodbye steaming pots of rice and open-bus tours.
Goodbye city of endless touts, cyclos, xe-oms, and persistent cab drivers.
Goodbye city where sidewalks are reserved for motorbikes, where every passing minute is a game of Frogger.
Goodbye communal dinners, concrete picnics, and open air markets.
Goodbye quiet temples and crowded alleyways. Goodbye city with a past and present, Goodbye city of Old Asia we all had dreamed about.
