As we woke up it felt a bit sad to have our last breakfast in Vietnam, but we would on the other hand soon be able to cuddle with Java. We checked out, and headed towards French Quarters this time to hopefully see some nice architecture while doing the last minute (hours really) shopping. To be honest the architecture wasn’t that impressive, a lot of things have been badly managed and old buildings were deteriorating in a depressingly fast manner, Hoi An beats Hanoi any day when it comes to architecture.
We stopped by a French surrealist exhibition which was quite nice, as well as countless galleries with local artists. After a few hours of shopping and browsing art it was however time to say goodbye. We decided we would take the offer of 15USD and have the ride to the airport arranged by our hotel rather than taking a regular cab. Unfortunately Mona’s scarf she had managed to not loose during the whole trip was left behind but all in all nothing worse than that.
We had our second breakfast at Heathrow while waiting for our last leg, and were less tired than expected since we got a few hours of sleep on the flight from Hong Kong. As we arrived in Göteborg we were almost surprised that all luggage had gotten there as well. Then a fast, silent and expensive taxi ride later we met a very happy Java in our home. After unpacking we thought we would go to IKEA and pick up parts for the upcoming kitchen renovation – it was the last day in some campaign so it would probably not be many people there, right? In the end it went surprisingly good and we managed to stay up until almost 22 before falling asleep in our own bed. Over and out for this time!
