Chris and I did a South-to-North tour of Vietnam. We started in Ho Chi Minh City, and made our way to Phu Quoc, then Hoi An and Hue, and lastly, Hanoi and Ha Long Bay.

The best breakfast ever! The classic banh mi sandwich with an egg. And it only cost $1!
The seafood market in Hoi An:
Cha Ca Va Long – the best meal I had in all of Vietnam! White fish seasoned with fish sauce, shrimp paste, and tumeric served with fresh noodles and morning glory, topped with dill.
Girls dressed in ao dai – the Vietnamese dress.
Water buffalo in hiding:

More pictures and details to come! I am actually taking a red eye tonight to NYC. (Please note I am not the jet-setter I appear to be.)
