As a full time employee/student, I don’t have much free time. As a result, whenever I have a day off, I visit my favorite street in the city. The name of the street is Hoang Dieu. It is located near Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and it is the place where I would always choose to go.
I usually go there in the morning, park my moped in the nearby parking lot and walk along the street by myself. Although I am quite a sociable person, I like my own space from time to time. Living in a metropolitan area with a fast-paced life doesn’t allow me to have time for myself that often. This is probably the only time I can escape from my normal routine, completely free and just breathe, without worrying about my job/my studies.
This street is perfect for my purpose because there are only government offices around here, hence it is always quiet. Moreover, both side of the streets are planted with many big trees, their shade covers the whole street. On a sunny day, you can see the sun’s rays shining through the leaves.
Every time I come here I feel fresh and less stressed, especially after my busy days at work/ preparing for exams. At the end of the day, I can refresh my mind and be ready for a new day.
