Vietnamese procedures completed

We went out with two representatives from the agency to the Vietnamese Foreign Affairs and also to apply for Toan's Vietnamese passport this morning. We will have the Vietnamese passport on Friday July 8.
After that, we went to the Ben Than Market. It was very crowded on a Saturday so we will have to go back on Monday. I ordered 2 Aodais for myself, made to fit, total: 65 USD!!! They will be perfect for formal functions. They will be delivered here at the hotel tomorrow. I bought a t-shirt for each kid and a funny one for hubby. Toan got very impatient so we had to leave quickly and go for lunch. We found a beautiful Vietnamese restaurant with a buffet|: we ate too much but it was great food! We just came back to the hotel just in time before a huge Vietnamese style downpour.
It is so good to get to see Saigon. Tomorrow, we will walk to the Reunification Palace and go see Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Post Office, if by any chance it is open on Sunday.
Once the rain stops, we will make our way to the zoo and the botanical garden.
Toan is unstoppable, he discovered the power outlets and we have to block them with luggage... a future electrician???
