I’ve been eating Pho exclusively for the past few days. It’s everywhere and it’s hard to find anything else up here in Northern Vietnam. Signs for Cam Pho line the streets and it seems it’s just a family that decided to open up shop to serve Pho and tea and sometimes beer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
This stove is cool. Just a hole with a coal fire.
It was only 30,000 Dong, which is $1.50 USD. Here I am at the roadside restaurant.
Here’s the girl who ran the place, and cooked me the Pho. She brought me her digital camera which had an error message saying “Memory Card is Write Protected.” She handed it to me, and I took out the memory card, flipped the notch, and everyone who had gathered around said “Ahhhhhhh!” I was a technology hero.
And here’s my second Pho of the day. Also only $1.50.
Here are photos of some of the meals I had in Mexico, mostly in Tapachula. All these were extremely cheap. $2, maybe $3.
Those carrots are hot.
I drank a lot of jamaica.
This is what the mangoes I bought looked like when I was almost through. Really juicy.
A shopkeeper in Tapachula figured out I was new to the area, so he gave me a green mango, limes, and chile powder, and told me what to do. A gift.
