Quick update...

No pics at the moment; we're about to leave Hanoi for Hue on a dreaded night bus. Once we arrive there and get settled, we'll download and post pictures.

In the meantime, here's what we've been up to.

- Getting my foot run over by a motorbike.

- Sleeping on a boat in Halong Bay, where the tour boats tie themselves together at night for better protection against pirates.

- Marching past Ho Chi Minh's well-preserved corpse.

- Enjoying the $0.16 Bia Hoi

- Discovering a new favorite dish, Nuoang Bo (or something like that), which is basically a plate of white and green onions, pineapple, tomatoes and raw beef with ginger and garlic that you barbecue yourself. Unlike the self-barbecue dish we tried on Christmas Eve (which was only OK), this was amazing.

- Buying eleventy billion DVDs for $0.95 each. Including all 18 seasons of The Simpsons for $18.

- Buying a new "North Face" backpack for $12.

All for now; we'll post again in Hue!
