This tour was very special, the tour have 6 guests but just 2 of them could speak English. So Thao and I just talked with them. First of all we decided to go to Ben Thanh market. We talked about coffee, dry food and fruits, especially durian. It was a interested fruit for them because the smell was so strong that they couldn’t stand it. But after we talked about durian, how tasty it is, what it has in traditions , its history, they said durian was worth to try.
After that, we went around in the market then we went to Nguyen Hue street, They asked some question about history like why my city has two name ? Then thao introduced the City People’s Committee. Then we went to the Opera house, the Church and the Post office.
The end of the tour was when we finished visiting the Independence Palace. In this tour the family was very funny so we just talked to each other like friends, had not some thing special except that just 2 two people could talk english and sometime i just smile with the 4 people rest and they smile back with me. Improving my English is what i learnt
