    A night at the opera (house)

    March 16, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    We both slept until gone 11am so missed breakfast at the hotel. It was a dull drizzly day which on the good side seemed to have improved the air quality - washing the dust to the ground - but on the down side it was a bit damp to be outside all day. Walked to a restaurant for lunch and then to the opera house to buy tickets for the evening performance of the Bamboo Circus. As part of the deal we were given vouchers for 2 free beers at a local bar so after a little window shopping at a posh shopping centre - Prada, Dior, Cartier etc - we went for our beers. Nice bar with proper beer. We were disappointed with the opera house (not as grand as expected) and the show (certainly no cirque du soliel) and the show only lasted 75 minutes. We consoled ourselves by returning to the good beer bar for a couple more beers and some food.Read more
