Returning to Vietnam - another step through HCMC

June in Saigon hits the body hard, following a 22 hour journey. On landing I was just not expecting the sheer heat and humidity at 8pm - it was like walking into a steam room. The muggy air climbs the Legs hitting every pore colliding with the emitting sweat - within minutes the clothes are damp to the touch.

The long exhausting trip hits home with the sweltering heat drawing the last remaining energy - sleep presumably easy becomes a battle against the warm night air.

By daylight the temperature rises - varying displays of the sun ramp the heat intensifying the climate and ruining fresh clean and dry clothes. I begin begging for cloud.
