Our beautiful Van Phat 1 hotel prepared a succulent buffet breakfast that I throughly enjoyed. We were still the only group there. A mix of vietnamese and western breakfast food. Yes I am still blogging about food.
|Again, here the coffee already tastes a bit like hazelnut...|
|We're getting close to the Cai Rang Market!|
Our boat took us into more small canals off the main river. There are hundreds of small canals like this, along which people live in stilt houses. If they're lucky, they have a paved path for motorbikes running near their house. Otherwise they get around by rowboat or motorboat!

|Jackfruits are enormous!|
|C'est comme CA qu'ils poussent les dragonfruits!?!?|
|Me and me Dad on the "monkey bridge".|
|Thank you for the great trip, Sinh Tourist! It was a VERY good deal.|
Actually, funny story... Dad loosened his fake tooth by biting on a coconut candy today. So while we looked for our night market, Dad stopped in front of a random but clean-looking dental clinic and just went in.
"How late are you open?"
"We are close in 45 minute."
Dad explained briefly to the very young dentist that his tooth with a crown was falling out and he needed a temporary solution. From behind his mask the young man replied:
"Is a crown, yes? I can do quick, I put temporary glue ok? Only... 5 minutes. Ok?"
"How much will it cost?" and under our surprised stare the young dentist said:
"No no. Free for you, ok? Come."Cool! That was easier than we expected. Walk-in clinic, free medical care. But finding my night market with tons of open restaurants was not so easy... It was an epic fail. We got a bit lost, walked in circles and never found it. Maybe it just doesn't exist anymore! So we ended up in a small vegan restaurant having meatless hot pot. Meh...
