In Hanoi...Second Day

By mid morning, three of the 8 workshop participants are already in Hanoi, and have already started to familiarize themselves with the Old Quarter. Three more will arrive this evening, and the last two arrive early tomorrow morning.

Hai Thanh and I along with Graham Ware has a wonderful lunch at Highway 4, which I understand is one of the best restaurants in Hanoi as described by the Lonely Planet. And since we were alerted to the weekly night market by the Golden Silk Boutique Hotel, we spent most of the evening taking the sights there, photographing...and ultimately having dinner in an open air restaurant, joined subsequently by Hai and Maika Elan, who'll be assisting me on this workshop.


We ordered a hot pot that came with prawns, tofu, beef, pork liver, clams and other stuff including mushrooms. It was way more than we could eat, but we pretty much polished the wonderful broth off.

After all, we had photographed the length and breadth of the night market all along the Hang Duong and Hang Dao walking streets, and that had honed our appetite.
