Where I stayed
Hotel Elegance 3

Flag of Vietnam  ,
Sunday, February 1, 2009

Today, we arrived in Hanoi via Danang.  We actually liked Danang; we thought it was a relatively quiet and orderly town.  The small museum of Cham Sculpture established in about 1915 by the French government is definitely worth a visit.

"Orderly" does not describe what we have seen on our first walk about town in Hanoi's old quarter.  My friend Bruria, came here last year on a trip with her mother.  Bruria, how did your mother ever get across a street .  We see you must be very fast.

We will be happy to spend the day outside of Hanoi tomorrow. We have a trip planned to see the Perfume Pagodas.  It is a 2 hour drive at least, each way and we look forward to seeing the northern countryside.

With our choice of the "Boutique" Hotel Elegance 3 in the famous old quarter, we have been adventurous.  The room is very quaint and the service very attentive.  I do have internet in the room, but no USB port.  More photos will have to wait, yet a bit longer!
