Today was a walking tour day, tour guides Craig and Paul took us for a walk to several of Hanoi's landmarks.
First to West Lake to see a pagoda, on the way we had to stop for Nin to have a coffee she is yet to learn that Vietnamese coffee is too strong and with condensed milk, so of course the coffee was to strong and not milky enough, a walk thru the Botanical gardens lead us towards the Ho Chi Min mausoleum unfortunately our arrival coincided with it being closed, only open in the mornings.
We sat down to lunch then wandered thru the military museum, interesting to hear about wars from their ancient history right thru to today with a different perspective.
From here we wandered back thru the old quarter to our hotel, due to the nature of the day and as a mark of respect to Hanoi no photos were taken.
Not true KW- I have some photos-Ed.
