On our first whole day in Hanoi, our Hanoi -based friend (a.k.a. the reason we were there in the first place) took us to the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology.
Fair warning: This is a photo loaded entry.
But first, we went to the side museum, which I forgot what it’s called but it housed the collections Vietnam got from other Asian countries: It was nearing the Tet holiday, as they call it, so those little orange trees seem like a staple in different establishments as it serves as their Christmas tree.
I’m so glad that this time I intentionally brought my camera for blogging purposes. I love this wall at the museum. They were able to identify their different tribes in Vietnam.
I love the following house models. They built the actual size of these houses outside the museum, which we saw and climbed. You will see them as you go along.
We went on to have a taste of Vietnam coffee at Helio Cafe, which is located within the musuem’s vicinity. The coffee part was already written here.
I love going to museums in other countries. I’m interested in other people’s culture and what they are like. There was supposed to be a cultural show that night but unfortunately its too late to get tickets and our day itinerary cannot accommodate. But I enjoyed touring the museum and it was a bonus that Eisen’s already been there so he gave us the low down on interesting things to see as we go along.
