Hanoi Parting Shots

Because of the major shift in our itinerary, we spent the last two days of our trip back in Hanoi. It’s a shame we couldn’t maximize the Halong Bay experience, but then again, there really is no bargaining with Mother Nature. On the bright side: Hooray for refunds and hooray for short-notice vacancies (Hanoi Chic Hotel, we love you already)!

Yes, crazy adjustments had to be made, but it was nothing a serving of spring rolls, stir-fried vermicelli, and a cup of Vietnamese coffee couldn’t fix.

Thanks to our bonus hours, we were allowed more leisure time in the capital:

We finally got to see the interior of Ngoc Son Temple in Hoan Kiem Lake.




And I can’t believe it took me this long to call attention to their curious Tintin fixation.

And our final stop this trip, we visited the Traditional Vietnamese House in #87 Ma Mhay.
