Horror-Strollerific Saigon

And the award for MOST STROLLER UN-FRIENDLY CITY WE HAVE EVER SEEN goes to... (drumroll please) Ho Chi Minh City!!!

In addition to the "usual" disappearing sidewalks and twice-every-block construction sites, there were downed electric cables, giant potholes, cobblestones, and curbs that were always at least 1 foot high. Or: I might be biased, still reeling from the experience of having to untangle my stroller from the random coil of very thin (almost invisible) metal wire that was laying on the road, while dodging cars and evil, evil little motos. If planning a trip there with a baby, I have two words for you: BABY BJORN.
