Vietnam Diaries 3rd March '23
Day 5 - HANOI
We checked into Grand Mercure Hotel in HANOI. A walking tour of the Temple of Literature with idols of Confucius, a scholar, and their Army General. Two huge soft-shell tortoises from the lake nearby had been mummified and displayed. Members shopped at the 36 Streets, named after various traditional merchandise, sold there. Dinner was at a Punjabi restaurant with members shaking a leg to the peppy tunes.
