First travel mistake of 2018

Found out the hard way last night that it is _not_ a good idea to walk from Ho Chi Minh City's airport to the airport hotel, no matter how short a walk it seems on Google Maps!

After several wrong turns and following paths that disappeared, the way involved crossing three chaotically busy roads (apparently busier than usual due to people celebrating Vietnam's win the AFC U23 Championship by riding around on scooters waving flags and screaming) which appeared to have pedestrian crossings that were completely ignored by drivers (not that I'm familiar with how crossings work here).

So yeah, I've booked the shuttle bus on the way back...
