Beautiful Hội An | Early morning coffee

This morning I got up really early and took a walk in the old town of Hoi An. My new friend, Trang, a Hoi An local, took me to a street coffee place that was crowded at 6:30 am. 6:30! Yes, you heard it right!

Below are some snapshots I took during my leisure walk!

Avocado and strings of steam rice cakes wrapped in banana leaves. The latter became my breakfast soon after that.

Trang showed me how to get to some nice local tailor shops and a beautiful hidden beach this morning. Can’t wait to check them out. It’s never too late to have the real local hook-up.

Flamboyant flowers are blooming all over the sky here.

This might be the source of many meals I have at home with caramelized river shrimp – a shrimp net over the main river running through the ancient town of Hoi An. This was my view from my street “café”.

And this is the café – a plastic stool on the pavement. The total cost for these two cups of Vietnamese iced milk coffee is 75 cents.

This cafe attracts both younger and older 🙂

This little lady has her own cup of coffee too! Actually she was just watching the cup for her mom but I saw her take several sips and then lightly dab the napkin on her lips like a real lady.
