Anyone who has been to Vietnam has seen some amazing things being carried on the backs of motorbikes, such as huge sheets of plate glass, cages of live snakes, a pool table, or large extended families. Having been cursed with a vivid imagination, I can’t help but imagine the possible accidents.
On a recent trip to Mui Ne, a seaside resort that’s around a 4.5-hour drive from Saigon, I witnessed one of the most interesting accidents that I’ve seen in years: two trucks, both laded with eggs, crashed into each other. A layer of broken eggs spanned both lanes of Highway 1. Luckily, it was overcast and raining. In the hot sun, that accident site would have turned into the world’s largest omelette.
Sadly, I was too stunned to get a photo.
