Today we woke with headaches, but they were quickly forgotten when we met up with Felix and Sarah, our friends from India, that morning at the hostel. After a quick catch up, we hit the streets of Hoi An with them for some serious shopping! This town is known for its tailors so where better to get some tailor made clothing?! Tam and I chose some serious work/graduation clothes, as well as some less serious blazers and winter coats! Felix and Sarah were more restrained!
After all the shopping we needed some energy in the form of Pho Bo (noddle soup), a local delicacy! We managed to wander around the market near the river, and even sneak into a house museum (before getting shooed out!), before we were drawn back towards the shops!
When we finally made it back to the hostel we were in need of some serious R&R before we headed out to dinner by the river again! Given our drinking activities the night before, we ended the night rather early and are now back at the hostel getting ready for bed! We will do better tomorrow night!
