Where I stayed
08:40 Cooking today. Feeling pretty tired, I might not do anything this afternoon but rest as my eyes look a bit bloodshot!
09:17 Koto chef founder - australian lady Tracey teaching us
Hanoi tattoo is an exhaust burn on the leg, I got one of these when I was 14 mind!
09:27 Fish sauce, first extraction mam nhi and phu quoc. Clear without sediment.
09:35 Beetlenut, relaxant
Beetleleaf, limestone and camquat, chew, spit chew for 20 min
09:47 Garlic should be purple! Not White apparently
09:48 Motorbikes in market
09:50 Smashing frogs on tiles, skinning, whilst still alive! Then gutting. Felt a bit light headed as it was so violent.
14:51 Army museum. Interestingly they call the Vietnam war the Anti-American imperialism war! Hmm says a lot!
15:34 Army museum is full of trinkets and tanks an planes, but still propaganda against America
20:03 Nice chat with family, apparently Florence Welch has bought several pieces of my sisters jewellery from a shop in London which is rather exciting! (no, I didn't remember who she was either until she said Florence and the Machine who I really like! I just didn't know that was her last name!)
It's pouring with rain outside.
20:24 Best: cooking
Worst: being so damn hot and sweaty
Beautiful: some of the parks around Hanoi
Biggest thing on a bike: 2 single bed mattresses
