Day 11

After a long night of karaoke, we deserved a high class breakfast. We found a nice restaurant to eat breakfast at near our hotel and it looked as if weddings were held there. Afterwards, we went to a giant indoor market. We spent two hours panning over every item imaginable.

Poor Vuong shops with me, which means he will spend at least $20 extra over the course of the trip just because he hangs out with me and they jack up the prices so much initially. Bargaining is fun but after a while it is very tiring and annoying, as you just want a fair deal and you never know if you actually got one.
