  1. I've found that a lot of food places in old town Hanoi close about 10 - 11pm but at the top of Hang Dau St I found the same kebap place in britmantoo's post #217 above open late, tables and chairs on the sidewalk and the food was good and cheap...

  3. best to pop around to makro when ye don't normally do and then you might find a whole range of western veg on offer...I've gone sometimes to find they ain't got zilch then other times with a full complement on offer...some nice NZ hass avocados last time @ 39thb each...

  7. we usually get a 50kg sack from a rice vendor every 6 weeks...the step daughter takes care of it and I usually inspect a handful later on at home, whole kernels and clean with no rocks or other junk, they eat a lot of rice where I useta live in south america so I know sumpin' about it...tastes good too when cooked... if you buy in bulk like we do best to get someone that knows what they're doin' to deal with the vendor...otherwise like with most things falang yer likely to get ripped off... tutsi stumbles humping 50kgs of rice home from the market 'hurry up tuts, the kids are starvin'...'
  8. some things can 'mimic' appendicitis symptoms...many years ago when I got bad hangovers and things associated with dehydration which result from too much drinkin' I thought that I was gonna die...then I'd re hydrate, lay off the booze and become right as rain again...easy enough to do when yer in yer 20s... not to say that being aware of genuine symptoms is not important...acute appendicitis can kill ye if not treated in a timely manner...
