Date: Jun 03, 2013,20:21 PM -  (view entire thread)

First time in Vietnam and to the political capital.

On the roads they start them young on bikes here.

As with all trips, it's my habit to check out the local markets or super marts to get some snacks or drinks.

Langauge was a problem but nothing that can't be overcome with smiles.

Lunch was simple

but dinner with local vietnamese friends was a feast!

[[/URL]

On some days: it was a loney Pho Bo dinner

a MUST do for tourist in Hanoi: the water puppet show. It's a unique artform only in Vietnam typically perform during monsoon seasons

Not satisfied, I searched and managed to try the No 1 coffee chain in Vietnam.

The setup was modern looking

Full of coffee machine deco

I ordered the Legend coffee which supposed had some civet cat coffee in it. Came nicely in a presentation tray with Mr Napoleon in it.

You can have it hot or cold. and I tried it both ways

A difference between machine and drip coffee. you can't see the crema but able to see the oils.

The experience was worth it. the coffee has a tinge of cocoa in it but it's really strong. Much like a double expresso. I could not sleep until wee hours in the morning...

Lovely ladies at the counter and you can get the grounds or beans below the cafe.

I think I may have gone a bit overboard. smile

cheers
