Vinh Phuc (29 sep 15)
Eventually, while bypassing Hanoi Airport, I came across a road called an "Expressway" which doesn't allow bicycles, so I turned onto a side road and ended up in the hamlet of Vin Phuc, in a hotel called Phuong Thao.
None of the little restaurants with signs saying "Pho" and "Bun" were open. I pointed this out to the young lady in the hotel, she said "you can have dinner with me and my family" (see picture).
Can you imagine this happening in Britain or the USA?
