Beer. The double whammy of carbs and alcohol. Nectar after five hours of pavement pounding in the heat and humidity. Nothing that could compare to the iced coffee at The Coffee Factory, with its ice foam, which in reality was ice-cream, that slowly filtered its way into the black coffee, at which point I stopped drinking. The iced Jasmine tea, refreshing and delicious.
Scrambled eggs and bacon to start the day with a typical Vietnamese dinner at Mon Hue. Pho, with beef bits. Infused with lime, ginger, and chili flavours. Served with a plate of fresh green bits, which I ate separately and did not add to the Pho. I left the noodles and skirted the meat bits. Far too frightening to negotiate.
Water melon (less than 60grams) my new favourite.
