Tiệm cà phê

*

Take “Rhythm of Love” by the Plain White T’s for example: hearing the tuy nhiên transports me bachồng to lớn San Francisco in 2012, at a time when it seemed to be all over the airwaves there. Then there’s “The Ketchup Song”, which reminds me of a trip khổng lồ the isl& of Langkawi, but also unfortunately reminds me of “The Ketchup Song” (note that someone had decided it was a good idea khổng lồ play it on a continuous loop on the speaker system during our three hour ferry ride from Langkawi to Penang).

Quite a few steps up from a tuy vậy titled after a condiment is one titled after the breakfast staple of many a backpacker in Southeast Asia: “Banamãng cầu Pancakes”, by singer-songwriter & musician Jack Johnson. The tuy nhiên (which started out as a joke between Johnson và his wife but has since become one of his most popular hits) is a a simple, feel-good ditty about a man saying to lớn his wife, “hey look, it’s raining outside so let’s just sleep in, pretover lượt thích it’s the weekkết thúc and I’ll go make us some banana pancakes later”.

That tuy vậy will now, and will quite possibly in the foreseeable future, remind me of Hoi An.

It’s not that the tuy nhiên was playing a lot during my time there, or because of the rain, or that both tuy vậy & thành phố have a laid-baông xã kind of vibe…no, it’s that after seeing the sheer number of street carts serving the treat at Hoi An’s night market, it’s an easy association khổng lồ make!

For the record, we quite enjoyed the dessert, served here with a drizzle of chocolate sauce on top.

Pancakes aside, the main star of any night’s visit to lớn Hoi An would have lớn be the lanterns. As bright (and yellow) as the area is by day, the UNESCO world heritage listed Ancient Town section truly comes alive sầu in the evenings with the many coloured lights out on display. They are everywhere in the old town; in fact, siêu thị owners are required by law to lớn have sầu them lit after dark.

For those wishing to lớn purchase some, the night market located on Nguyen Hoang Street is where you’ll find many of the lantern shops, lượt thích the one below.

During an evening stroll one night, my wife and I noticed a particular pup (below) walk past us. We caught up to lớn hyên a little later on at Tran Phu Street, sitting all alone and staring off into lớn the distance. It sat still even as I approached with my camera.

A visit to lớn Hoi An would seem incomplete without seeing the Japanese Covered Bridge, arguably its most iconic attraction. I highly recommover visiting either during the early morning or in the evening when the crowds thin out a little. The added advantage of a night visit is getting khổng lồ see the bridge all lit up.

There’s also plenty of action by the Thu Bon river itself, making it a great place to lớn sit & watch the world go by. And perhaps treat yourself khổng lồ some pancakes while you’re there – what could possibly be better?
