On bitches? Oh, I know.
Breakfast in Vietnam, just like in any other oversea country, always has a westernized influence: waffles, pancakes, eggs, and of course.. bacon. Even though they are the same dishes the bacon is slightly different. Normally, hotel breakfasts get repetitive but they had Vietnamese dishes. I don’t think I’ll ever eat porridge for breakfast as much as I ever will in my life unless it’s in Vietnam. I really can’t complain though.
Clockwise: Watermelon, Dragonfruit, and Vietnamese Passion Fruit
After breakfast, we headed to the Temple of Literature. Students would visit the temple to get good luck before the exams.
Some people take their wedding pictures there too.
Then we visited the museum/temple next to the Sword Lake. In my recap post of day one, I mention about the legend of a huge turtle who swallowed the emperor’s sword. There is a huge turtle that still lives in the lake and the one pictured below is a preserved one from the lake.

Then we went to a tourist trap (which was incredibly boring), but my mom said that the performance and the songs sung were genuine Vietnamese folklore.
Finished the day with some of The Office Season 3.
