Saigon Day twenty six

Our last full day for this trip. Started with a last fab coffee with Andrew and said our goodbyes. Fig cafe for lunch. Lovely premises that looked a bit Balinese, or perhaps I have Bail on my mind. Great grub and of course very cheap. Then off to the Chua Vien Giac temple – not one you will find on the tourist websites. Very spectacular. I asked Bino about these lavish temples in a poor country. He told me that they are all built by voluntary contributions, particularly old people who are recognised at the temple. This temple is quite new and is very beautiful.
Back home for a rest then down to the local cafe for a coconut and an iced coffee. Heard the little old lady calling out her tofu and got one. I paid her$2.50 about 14 times her price to let her know how much I enjoyed it. Had a quick Facebook chat with Nyoman our Balinese driver who will pick us up from the airport tomorrow. Then a farewell BBQ on the roof. Bino did a great job giving us pork, chicken and prawns.
Bali tomorrow!!
