Vietnam is filled with motorbikes. Google the term “motorbikes everywhere” and your computer screen will be filled with images and articles about Vietnam. Watching the constant flow of motorbikes on the streets was eye opening for us. We saw motorbikes carrying families of four, ducks, pigs, small trees, huge bouquets of flowers, giant bags of trash…the list is endless.

When the streets were filled, motorbikes would use the sidewalks.

And yes, sometimes we had to wait to cross the sidewalk.
