Isi lived in Hanoi, so she had already done the cultural things, but I walked to the Literature temple, where every school girl and boy wanted a picture with me. I could not walk for 5 meters. They were really cute, but at some point I fled the temple 😀
From there it is about 500 meters to the Fine Museum of Art.Additionally to traditional and very old Vietnamese pottery and paintings, they show some great new work like :

From there we walked around the city, watching people, drinking coffee and just enjoying the beautiful day.

Coffee with yoghurt (that is what you can see on the pic on the right – delicious and great on a hot day!)
Bun Bo Nam Bo
and Bun Cha (DO NOT trust my pictures here. Those are the right dishes, I just always forget what is what…)
