After 15 hours on a bus ride from Hue with little or no sleep we eventually arrived in Hanoi. We were asked to look a a few hotels which we felt obliged to do however none of them had big enough rooms for three girls with Australian size luggage and lots of it. We found a hotel we liked that would fit us and our luggage for only $4 per night (Bargain!).
We dropped our luggage off and went to have an early lunch as we hadn't eaten since 5pm the night before. We found a restaurant 'Hanoi Hot Plates' where for 2 Aussie Dollars you were able to have a drink, garlic bread and pizza - so tasty. We then went back to our hotel before heading out to an internet cafe to read emails.
I bought a few more DVD's and a few gifts i still needed on my list. We then headed out for dinner. We walked for a while til we found a restaurant to eat at. I was so full - then we went shopping some more. After a while we went back up to the room, watched a bit ot tv, before finally heading to bed after a long day surviving on no sleep.
