Day 05 (part 3)
26.03.2009 - 26.03.2009
By the time I left the Citadel, the sky has become gloomy again. I decided that I was too lazy to walk to the train station, so I will just get my ticket on the spot tomorrow morning. I continued with the aimless wandering which I did so often in Hanoi. Stopped at a cafe for milkshake. Very nice! I am getting hungry again but the food in that cafe is pretty pricey. So I continued walking and saw...
So I entered and ordered a bowl of...
This is known as Bun Bo Hue, or Hue Beef bee-hoon, if you translate it literally into English. More ingredients and much much tastier than the pho I had in Hanoi. 20k Dong, considered pretty good value! Walked towards the wharf by the riverside to sit around and watch people.
Some street scenes of Hue:
Parents waiting for their kids outside a school.
Boats by the river. Some are offering dinner on the cruise. I think must be quite expensive.
Beyond the tourist town.
Walked back to the hotel around 6 p.m.+. The guy who checked me in wasn't around. After a few minutes of chicken and duck talk with the lady at the guesthouse, the man returned and he had me moved to the hotel next door. Whatever, as long as I get what was promised at the price that was agreed upon. So in the end I stayed at Hotel Bao Minh next door, which has a pretty decent room too. Took another shower and rested a while before going out for a walk and dinner.
Take a look at my USD 6 room!
