Hanoi Highlights

We’re back in Thailand after 11 days in Hanoi.  While we originally planned to travel the length of the country and into Cambodia, we cut the trip short for various reasons. Our plans have changed at least once a week for the duration of the trip (going on 3 months…) which would normally drive me crazy, but I’m learning to embrace it.

Some of my favorite things about Hanoi:

Food in Edible Wrappers:
Banh Cuon (rice flour pancakes with minced pork and mushrooms inside) and Nem Ran (Spring Rolls)

People-watching around Hoan Kiem Lake

Seeing unusual things transported by motorbike:

Trees…or a dozen crates of empty beer bottles


Sidewalk restaurants:

It was a little challenging for Mike, who’s 6’2″, but we learned to embrace the tiny stools!


Amazing Pastries:
I’m not sure why they served our profiteroles with spoons, but they were delicious!

Ca Phe Sua Da:

I might even like this better than Thai Iced Coffee!  Incredibly strong black coffee served over ice with sweetened condensed milk.
