Soles of my Shoes

How much does it cost to repair a shattered iPhone screen in the former Saigon?

600,000 VND Vietnamese dong--about $30 USD.

How much does it cost to have a street cobbler re-sole a pair of shoes six blocks on down the road?

Replacing a Shattered
iPhone Screen
The one pair of shoes I've been wearing while I travel (for the last three years!) now have a new lease on life.

That broken iPhone that Mala gave me last week is now spiffy and like-new. It even has a local SIM card inside, to-boot.

My local number--for however long I'm traveling in Viet Nam--is:

+84 1234949147
