Interestingly a lot of local beers here are named after the city in which they are made, which means you can chart our journey through Vietnam by the drinks we’re having. Above, a beer from Hanoi.

And then there’s the coffee! In Vietnam coffee is traditionally filtered at your table and best served over ice with condensed milk. I think I am developing a very sweet tooth…
