Day 131 - Museum of Ethnology
The rain held up and the temperatures dropped to almost London level, the best thing to do with the day is to go to a museum and the Museum of Ethnology came highly recommended.
And indeed it's not only a very nice museum about all the different people living in Vietnam but also provides the ability to visit traditional houses and see a free Water Puppet show.
It is a bit out of the way so not really walking distance from most other sights but well worth the trip there.
Since the traditional houses are outside as is the Water Puppet Theater a nice day would make the visit more enjoyable but it was still ice to walk around and see everything outside and inside.
The plan was to drive to Sapa tomorrow morning but they just had quite a lot of snow there and the rain is supposed to last for another day here. Since it's no fun to drive in the rain on a motorbike, I will decide in the morning to maybe stay another day in Hanoi before heading onward.
