Pedr collected me from my Hotel in the afternoon. I was his sole passenger that day.
Very nice guy and good company. Genuine ex-US Army 1963 Jeep was great fun!
Unfortunately, I had developed a slightly delicate stomach during the day but he was very helpful.
First stop was a local drinks stall where he got me an interesting lime juice drink. it was great for settling my stomach. The market was fascinating. Even though I live in Hong Kong and am used to Wet markets, this was more reminiscent of Asia 30 years ago!
With live frogs, eels, great looking fresh fish.
Lots of different meats. Great looking Pork Belly, Pigs ears, every part. All legal!
We had a delicious Viet 'pancake' on the traditional little red stools. No idea what was in it, but very good. Then a more traditional deep fried Banana pancake, which was also helpful in calming my inside.
I did not want to risk too much, so I declined his offer a fish restaurant.
Instead, he took me on a trip in the jeep to the lady Buddha, which was great in the Jeep.
On the way back, we stopped at a local Pub for a Beer and some 'drinking' snacks.
Then off to the Night market. This was more touristic, less of a local Market, but located next to a fabulous Buddhist Temple in full Prayer mode.
So many food stalls here of every description. Even 2 Australian guys making Pizza!
We tried a very delicious Viet dessert. Like poached Quail eggs in individual deep fried corn baskets. Very nice indeed. And lots of good conversation about his home, Freemantle.
My only regret is not feeling well enough to fully try all the different dishes he showed me, but he did his best. Entirely my own fault.
