Where’s the sun?
It seem’s that she has taken a sabbatical. So another cloudy and windy day welcomes us. We start our breakfast on the roof top of our homestay but already 10 minutes later we speed inside. It’s raining again. 30 min later we start our tour through old Hoi An. At the end of the day we agree that Hoi An is our favorite city in Vietnam. Various ancient houses, still in private property of the 8th or 9th generation, many nice little shops and a crowded typical food market in a city located at a river and close to the sea make you feel being a bit in old Asia. Especially up from the late afternoon when hundreds of colored lanters start to shine in the streets the atmosphere changes to ancient times. At 6 pm we enjoyed a very good massage at Hoian Spa . The dinner at Dao Tien was delicious but the portions were a bit too small.
