A hidden gem

One of the things I love the most about living here is finding quirky places off the tourist route.  It's that little sense of adventure you feel when you find that spot that takes a little more navigating to get to. Todays example.....

Down the little art lane in Dong Khoi 
Go through the motorbike parking lot and up the dodgy stairs.
Walk along surprisingly pretty outdoor hallway.
View from top of stairway.

Find yourself here!

......enjoying this!  A real unexpected find.  Food was lovely.  Great baguettes and coffee with little pastries to die for.  There is also a gift shop attached to the back.  A tad expensive for my taste but if you are after original pieces....perfect!

This was the favourite bit for me.  This is the view from the porch area.  It overlooks the "real" Vietnam and gives you a bit of a glimpse of how people really live here.  No refurbishment, no sales pitch, just real houses that look the same as they probably did more years ago than I care to think about.  Ahhh.....just a little taste of the good old days.
