Before leaving Vietnam, we had one final day in Hanoi and decided to spend it B52 hunting. Vietnam is so proud of the David and Goliath-esque victories in the downing of these monstrous bombers, and everywhere you go you’re reminded of this.
Our next stop after Hoi An was Hue. Being quite close we opted to get the 4 hour bus instead of the train. Well, despite being a day time journey we were hustled on to a sleeper bus for the journey. This consisted of 3 columns of cramped bunk beds with extra beds thrown in anywhere possible. One aisle was blocked with beds, an extra one was even squeezed into the top row and the toilet (which we ended up quite near to) was out of order and smelled worse than the long drops at 2am at Glastonbury.
