Jan 1: Landing in Hanoi

Looking trip, but we had a great (if sleep deprived) day in Hanoi.

Made it to the hotel, walked around Hoan Kiem Lake (boy if we could zone Greenlake like this!), had a beer, and then a fantastic street vendor dinner.

Meeting friends in the morning and we will sample the coffee!

Day Zero Plus

Travel day. Not there yet most of the way there. We are in Taipei, having coffee-stopped here on our way to Bangkok a couple of years ago.

Flight was interesting; a young man was agitated and hurt himself, and a trio of medical professionals leapt to the rescue. Bandaged him up, and with permission from his guardian, taped him into a seat. And then sat with him for the next 6 hours, trying (pretty successfully) to keep him calm. Flight crew (Eva Air) was also terrific.

Next stop: Hanoi!
