While drinking my cafe sua da on my little stool, waiting for my tyre to be repaired (i.e. the super glu to dry), I got to see quite a few bicycles and motorbikes having their tyres inflated. That is when I realised that most people actually wash their bicycles to have them shine. The idea had never crossed my mind.

Ham Nghi, Saigon, Vietnam, January 2012
Got a puncture in one of the air tubes of my bicycle. A friendly repair guy at a street corner opted to fix it with super glu. I was a bit skeptical of the method but as I was not in a hurry and could not do much else, I sat down, drank a cafe sua da and chatted with him. It took him half an hour and cost me 15 000 VND. But this time, the traditional street ingeniousness didn't pay off and two blocks further, my tyre was flat again.
