This one is about new year in Vietnam.
So I was playing pool at my hostel in Nin Binh and at around 11:15 pm, the hostel guy who bartends comes in animated and asks “Who wants to see some fireworks?!”
I join the two local guys and a couple from Netherlands and am lead to a jeep. The jeep turns out to be US military style jeep with big speakers and DJ music running on it!
We then proceed to drive around the town for the next 45 minutes, while I’m almost freezing because I’m just wearing a light fleece and wasn’t prepared for riding around, all the time thinking how the heck did I even get into this situation!? We finally did see a few fireworks and the guys I was with were overjoyed :)
