We get to enjoy old Hanoi for another night!
I love to sit at the bar right across from the hotel and watch all the peddlers passing by, the diners sitting in tiny tiny plastic chairs, the hundreds of scooters flying by either carrying a family, lovers or workers with their tools.
We even joined the locals and line danced with them in the park. We didn’t know what we were doing but faked well. It reminds me of the dancing going on In China at almost every street corner!
The next morning, Cat and I signed up for a private cooking class at one of the best cooking school in Hanoi – Rose kitchen- this is our chef! Lynh. We will buy all our food fresh from their local market
This has to be the biggest zucchini I’ve ever seen!
We buy fish
