(JK. It’s a combination of pho and Anthony, which is exactly what happened at lunch today!)We went to a hole-in-the-wall spot that is packed with people and doesn’t have a menu. The only thing you get is a big bowl of beef pho, ladeled out by this Vietnamese woman who takes her soup pretty seriously.You also get a basket of deep-fried breadsticks to throw in there, too I’m a bit jetlagged, but other than that everything has been great.
Leah and I spent most of the afternoon exploring Hanoi.The city is packed with people eating, talking, drinking, shopping, and swerving — the tiny streets are packed with little stools for sitting and motorbikes for riding.A mix of French and Asian architecture make for beautiful, interesting scenes; Kentucky Fried Chicken, anyone?Among the honking horns and busy streets, there are some nice green getaways.Leah and I took a nice stroll along a Hồ Hoàn Kiếm lake!We saw some street-side donuts…And had to get some.Greasy, but good!And just to add a couple random things to this post, here’s the messiest jumble of electrical madness I’ve ever seen:And a live roadside chicken which I am probably going to eat tonight.Have a great day!
- Have you ever seen an animal before you ate it?
- What’s your favorite thing to do on vacation?
- Do you/would you ever own a motorbike?
