Driss: strong> In Hue we ate a birthday cake for Daddy and we were in a temple where we could not make noise. There was a monk who sang “bingbengbooong”.
We took the train last night, and we were in a cabin where we slept.
Today we are in a town called Hanoi. There is a lot of noise and in the next room there are ladies who speak very loudly and wake me up during the nap.
Berengere: strong> We had a bike ride in the area surrounding Hue, and we met lots of nice people: children sang us a song near the bullring tigers, then we discussed with two French tourists near the tomb of Emperor Tu Duc, and we were invited to go in a school near a temple.
The train was cool but it was not the best night of our lives. We arrived exhausted, and there as it was nap time (they have the chance to sleep them …) we had to wait for the station agents to wake up to get our bikes.
As a child is a loving, many people come to Driss to offer him candy or… touch his penis, as is done from time to time with small children in Vietnam, which is disturbing for us Western! I think the guy who did this is not going to start again, I yelled at him like never before, because here they do not irritate, so I went for an alien.
Hanoi is polluted and noisy but we made it good.
Matthias: strong> It’s always encounters that make the best moments of the trip … what’s more we met people who agree to sing in front of a microphone, which is VERY rare thing in these Asian countries where shyness in front of the windshield is often the strongest!
Otherwise Hue is nice, though somewhat aggressive tourism level and we finally made our big trip by train: Hue – Hanoi: 15 hours!
If you like the noise Hanoi is happiness, and it’s as good for lungs as a pack of cigarettes per day: my lungs regain their happiness, since I stopped smoking since Vientiane Laos (I was going to say: my lungs breathe again, but the term may not be the most appropriate).
Oh and sorry, but we re-hang sweaters: here we find pleasant temperatures !
We will do some walks with frames, then we will classify bikes for sightseeing ten days in northern Vietnam with my parents that we have not seen for 7 months.
See U, kiss-kiss
