Hanoi Day 2 - Drupal Tour 2016

By Eduardo García ● CTO | February 29th, 2016

Yesterday we started our day picking up some laundry we left behind the day before; Fortunately, our clothes returned completed and the best clean, the rate is 1 KG = 1 USD.

Our first tourist spot was the Museum of Ethnology where we could learn a little bit about ethics that compose Vietnam.

By accident, we were getting in Quán Thánh Temple but was a good accident, because, inside we found a colossal statue of Buddha.

This bridge was a real the cliche of Vietnam because the bridge is used by Vietnam Rail company and on each side of the railways there are lanes exclusive for motorcycles, and you can see bikes carrying the most unusual things.

Vietnam bridge I could swear that in Vietnam are more motorcycles than cellphones :P.

Because we love the Water Puppet performance we saw early in the morning we decided to attend a famous Water Puppet Theater close to our hotel, was an excellent show.
