The plan for today was to walk around the city, but first; breakfast. Can’t say that either of us was very impressed with the food we got.
And the coffee did not taste as coffee, lucky me the hotel is right above a Subway.
Not like that coffee was fantastic either, but hey it had a faint taste of coffee too it.
We then headed to a place here in the city, built in the 70thies and contained loads of chairs.
After walking around there, no AC, the Starbucks down the street was calling our names and not only did they have AC also Christmas has arrived so there were gingerbread.
Next stop was a chatedral and an historical post office, practical enough located right next to each other.
This before we headed to find the Opera house, without luck. Giving in, thinking it was the big tall building being under renovation we instead set our minds into finding lunch. The weather decided for us, as the sky opened up we ran to the closest place we saw that appeared to have food.
When I ordered fried shrimps with green rice I didn’t realize that the green rice was a part of the batter, it was and it was yum.
Our continued walk took us to a big plaza that wasn’t available on our map (I figure that the Plaza with all the designer stores isn’t featured on a free map because users of free maps wouldn’t be able to afford shopping there anyhow).
The Plaza also included a tourism office and thanks to that we finally found the Opera house.
Apparently there was no show on tonight though, even though they had posters saying that there was a show tonight, so we kept walking to the War Museum. Interesting stuff, can’t say that I’m an expert on the Vietnam War so it was fascinating even though it took me a while to figure out the good and bad guys.
We finished that stop of with another rain session.
We then decided that that was it and returned to the hotell for a quick breather before we headed out for massage (nope, no pics of that) and then dinner at a location where we expected a big market. It might be because it was Sunday, there was no big market.
However, there was a small one where the Queen herself could do some market research for future reference. Since the big market wasn’t open we didn’t spend as much time there as expected and instead we went barhopping.
Over priced bar with rude staff and Christmas stuff and a different Thai beer than the ones o had before.
Small bar with so called buckets that didn’t look like buckets.
None of them really caught my fancy and we decided to back to the small street where the beer cost nothing and peoples noses aren’t as far up on the air. On the way there I caused myself a war wound by walking into a non-moving object. Ouch, it hurts!
Now I’m totally beat and there will be another long day tomorrow so, goodnight ma peeps!
