Arrived at our hotel and met Jenny and Cherry, who I have been emailing to organise accommodation and our Halong Bay and Sapa trips. Lovely friendly girls, they brought us a welcome drink and chatted about our trip, making sure that the visa and pickup went smoothly. Showed to our room and changed, then we went back downstairs, paid our bill in total (we were going to change money to pay in dong, but they were o to take Aussie dollars and we got it at a better rate than at the bank)
We went out again about 4 to explore some more, found the local markets which were almost ready to close, wandered around all the streets of the Old Quarter and just lapped up the experience. I grabbed a bread roll with 2 skewers of meat (hopefully beef) 20000 dong and Mike had seafood noodles at a small roadside restaurant 60000 dong.
We headed back to the hotel and were asleep in bed just after 7:30pm.
