We have had a good time paling around this capitol city of Vietnam. We haven't found people to be outright rude but have noticed much higher prices (ie beer is no longer 50 cents!). My brother in law sent us some of his recommendations and we have seen most of them - Ho Chi Minh, who is embalmed, the "Hanoi Prison", and we found the Temple of Literature by ourselves. To be honest, we also spent a good amount of time drinking coffee (also now $1, no longer 50 cents) and doing crossword puzzles in cafes. Not a bad way to spent our time winding down Asia!
While we have been here we have also done some good eating! The food has continued to be amazing, though we have yet to find a good Banh Mi sandwich so we are already missing those!
