Just a few piccies from the previous weeks happy holiday with the lovely girlfriend We stayed in the old French quarter, did nothing apart from hang out, get lost in the narrow streets everyday going to / from the lake for happy hour beers. It was a delightful experience to be together & operating in the same time zone - waking, sleeping, eating & walking around together like in a real relationship; unlike the "twilight zone" we both live in Chiang Mai when Meows works until 2AM every night. Anyway 'nuff waffle. Looking for manna from heaven? HGL going native and the realizing she'd been conned into a sale for the use of the pole & pineapple basket! Our 1 & only"tour" was a taxi ride out to the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology From memory Vietnam has 43 different ethnic groups & the museum is a gem of a place to go for info... Happy go lucky was impressed with some of the houses and a few other objects Check it out when you're in Hanoi. Well worth a visit.
