Supper in Hanoi. (Continuation of Day 7) June 6

After Sue and Minh's appointment, we all (the agents, an alum, and us) went out for dinner for authentic Vietnamese food.

The restaurant had food prep stations all around the outer walls. The dining area was in the middle of the room. Each station had it's own cooks, ingredients and appliances to make a specific item. Was fascinating.

And then it was brought to our table, family style:

Sue enjoyed this meal with every cell in her body.
I never got the hang of chopsticks.
Those statements are unrelated. They're just random facts.

This was Sue's favorite dish. Instead of getting a sweet dessert, she opted for these:

This was the dessert; a sweet lumpy beverage, kind of like our bubble tea. Probably coconut milk based.

And then we said our goodbyes and walked a few miles back to our hotel:

When we got back to the hotel, Minh and I decided to sit in the lobby and listen to the pianist who was playing the grand piano. Just as we settled in, her shift was over and she left the building. Haha. Great timing on our part. 

Awhile later, Minh had a late work meeting: 

A long, rich, full, amazing day.
Our last one in Hanoi. 
(Haha, if you're keeping track, we were only here two days.)
We'd be leaving in the morning.
