Halong Bay to Hoi An
Yesterday I had a TaiChi lesson on board the Ginger Junk - the bartender was my TaiChi master. Then we had a cooking class where we learned to make Spring Rolls. After a lovely Pho lunch we got off the Ginger Junk and snoozed all the way back to Hanoi. We had lunch at a wonderful little French place called Green Tangerine in the Old Quarter and shopped for a bit until Lon decided we better get to the airport.
We said farewell to our accommodating, trusty, flexible, polite and very kind guide (Lon) and boarded our plane for Danang to get to Hoi An. Flight was simple and we were met at the airport by our new guide - Phong - for the next leg of our trip.
Our hotel - The Victoria Hoi An - is marvelous. Our room looks out at the South China Sea and it is warm and tropical. In one hour we meet Phong for a tour of the old Hoi An town and a place called My Son.
