Red Rover in Saigon, Vietnam

Red Rover in Saigon, Vietnam

Phạm Ngũ Lão Street : Backpacker’s District : Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam

There was a night in Saigon, Vietnam when we sat on the street drinking beer in child sized plastic chairs. Both sides of the street were filled with people lined up facing each other. Just staring at each other, like a drunken, lazy version of Red Rover. The ultimate people watching. I was honestly waiting for someone to yell ‘charge’ and both sides of the street to lunge at each other and start brawling. It never happened. Instead, we just repeatedly said no to locals trying to sell us bracelets, cigarettes, and candy.
