        ... past several thatch roofed houses that had a kind of driveway for their small wooden row boats. The bamboo and water coconut forest that surrounded us seemed to be impenetrable. After about a 20 minute ride we arrived at a place where we were given fruit and some tea. At the back of this restaurant were some animals. There was a monkey in a cage (who seemed quite aggressive), a couple of squirrels that were constantly doing circles around their cages, and a dog ...

The current name of the city is Ho Chi Min, of course, but I cannot really relate to that as I have known it as Saigon all my life. I'll leave the new name ...
