Saigon Saigon Bar

We took a tennis friend of ours to the Saigon Saigon Bar at the top of the Caravelle Hotel. It was National Day here in Vietnam, their version of Independence Day. On our way through the Caravelle hotel I couldn't resist taking a picture next to the Vietnamese flag on ice surrounded by shellfish. The bar is nice but very expensive by Vietnamese standards. The drinks are about $7 each. You know a place is expensive when they quote all the prices in dollars. I'm not sure where we're supposed to get dollars anyway. All of the ATM machines spit out Vietnamese Dong. The Saigon Saigon drink is very nice though, even at $7.
