Global Journey: Scene VIII
Well, the Cub scooted it's way up to the Capitol. From there I chucked it in a bus up to city of Hà Giang, to give my ass a rest. After reaching Hà Giang it was back on the 49cc again, to explore the northeast wilderness. We'll finish up in Hà Nội next time.
Heirloom cucumbers for 26 cents a kilo. Pretty sure she overcharged me.
In the north many spots are cook to order like this casual sit-down restaurant. This place had the choice or chicken or pork. He fried me up one the worst meals in some time. Female cooks from now on.
Sweet Bánh Mì.
Lemongrass marinated spicy pork leg skewers. Wood fire is the key element. Northern meats are generally more salty than in Hồ Chí Minh. A welcomed change after all that southern sugar.
Nighttime steam buns.
Thuốc Lào. A type of Vietnamese tobacco smoked bamboo-bong style. Okay, not edible but comes from plant, yo. A rush, no doubt. Here's a local with high-elevation-lung-capacity showing how it's done. Aids in digestion to boot.
