I think this is our last night in Saigon. In the past few days we've hit the Cu Chi Tunnels and the Mekong Delta. Both places had tiny creatures that feasted on my delicious blood. Why did God make me so damn tasty?

At night we've hit Windows, Gossip, Napoly, Aqua and Liquid - not to mention the tiny bars in the backpacker district. None of these places make a decent drink and tend to be very meager with their vodka. I think they've adopted the Canadian method of pouring the liquor into thimbles. Luckily the locals find us amusing and keep plying us with shots of cognac and Coke.

They especially find Alex (lexxy_pie) fascinating - particularly the men. Tonight I saw a five-foot pixie of a man repeatedly try to freak Alex. Eventually the security dragged the drunken pixie out, otherwise I'm sure he would've offered Alex a large amount of dong in exchange for intimate savagery.

By now I've regained the ability to cross a Southeast Asian street without losing any toes. The key is to never stop. Just keep walking at a set pace, and the cars and mopeds swerve around you.

I just realized that all my party contacts in Tokyo may no longer be there. If any of you have tips of cool, interesting places in Tokyo to pillage and ransack at night, let us know ...
