Started out with a trip to the pool on the 12th floor.

Phuong with her nasal spread in the morning.

The training facilities were very good.


Very temping pool on the top floor, the 11th.

Martin and the pool.

It is nice with an infinity pool on top of hotels these days. The water held 230 centigrade. Nice for swimming.

Martin dropped his thermometer to check the temperature. It sank, since it is made of plastic.

We found some equipment and fished it out.

The breakfast was very neat, simple and well-tasting. More than sufficient for us fatties.

Then off to the city to find Martin's swimming goggles with -6.

Off we went through some back alleys with a meat market.

The entrance to the shop.

They sell live fish as well. Vietnam is a fishing nation like Norway.

Martin in the goggles shop with his -6.

They really had a nice selection. Martins was 420 K dongs, or some 20 USD.

The name and model of the goggles.

Barcode of the goggles.

Then off to immigration and battling the bureaucracy.

Very nice, female officer, Huong Thi My Loan.

Our hotel.

Time for a beer at the lake.


It was an expensive, not nice restaurant.

You paid for the view. And we left.

We went to The Coffee Club, bar and restaurant across the street.

We sat on the 4th floor, overlooking the city. Nice video of the city's rooftops.

Another hotel across the street where we stayed before, or so Phuong says.

Very fancy sink n the toilet.

Martin in the bathroom mirror.

Puffed rice. Phuong lies to eat it.

Off with a rickshaws. Nice way to see the city. Phuong's video from the trip.

Martin and his big belly.

Nice driver and Martin.

The main cathedral of Hanoi.

Phuong and Martin outside the cathedral.

There are more traffic cops in Hanoi than elsewhere.

They actually show up to work.

Vietcom Bank has a very nice display many places in town.

The opera of Hanoi with Phuong's camera.

The cathedral with Phuong's camera.

The opera of Hanoi.

Another 5 years plan.

Some monument of some wars fought.

Weddings are popular on Friday the 13th.

Beers are cheap and plentiful in Vietnam.

Another wedding is taking place.

Valhalla pub. Nice Nordic name.

Ahn's place.

Good by to our rickshaw driver. He did a good job.

In the evening in the beer street of Hanoi with Montana.

Phuong, Martin and Montana at a quiet stretch of the beer street.

Montana and Martin having a nice chat alongside the street.

Martin's beer for the evening. 9 bottles or 3 liters of Hanoi Beer. Very good though.

The life of the beer street. Watch the video.

Sales pitch.

Busy street

Evening view.

Time to go back to the hotel and a sleep.
