Since I had only two days free in Ha Noi, I hired a guide to make the most of my time. Van was fantastic and funny and made the day tour very enjoyable. I went to Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, and the presidental palace, Ho Chi Minh's stilt house, the Temple of Literature, Vietnam Museum of Ethnography.
The food in HaNoi varies, and is heavily based on vegetables, and very cheap. Most of my meals were less than the equivalent of $2 USD. The exception being my dinner at "White Lotus". I was surprised to find myself dining with an art gallery owner, and graduate of London School of Economics. Wow impressive.
