3/7/2014 – Hanoi
Arrived on the train around 6:30am in Hanoi. Went to the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, nice and cool inside, cooking outside. Saw the presidential palace, then to the old quarter and had a look around. Saw a few different things, then bought tickets for the water puppet show. Back to the hotel where half the arvo was spent resting. Out to tea where they had set it up for Mums birthday. Had a cake, quite nice, had the best duck ever with some orange sauce (I really need to find what restaurant it was so I can go back there if I’m ever in Hanoi again), then off to the puppets. Need to ban cameras and flashes, as the show was interrupted by everyone trying to get their camera higher than the people, meaning you couldn’t see anything but a camera. Quite interesting how it works, the puppeteers actually stand in the water, they must work pretty hard to get the puppets doing their stuff properly.
