Surreal first 48 hours in Hanoi. Couchsurfing with a guy who works in the high-fashion industry and he basically gave us the keys to his 4,000+ sq ft loft that he converted from an old pharmacy factory. Then took us to an international music fest, led us to amazing street food, welcomed us to his sister’s birthday party with a huge home-cooked Vietnamese hot-pot meal, which we then left early because he was late for the grand opening of a Lebanese restaurant complete with belly dancers.
And that doesn’t even include the cool German couple we hung out with three times, the pick-up games with Hanoi Ultimate Club, or the fact that everyone at the grand opening was dressed to the nines while Lisa and I were in our travel attire having not showered after ultimate.
