2 September 2001

Vietnamese National Day, I spent most of the day wandering aimlessly taking in the sights. I visited two pagods one of which was full of tourists, the other empty except for an old woman lighting incense sticks.

In the evening we went down to Hoan Kiem lake and mingled with the celebrating crowds. There was a carnival atmosphere but not much actual attractions and the only thing that drew attention was a speak your weight machine. Afterwards I got lost exploring the back streets of the old quarter.
