Traveling diabetic #4

Hi,

Jan here.
Hanoi.
Walk through the market to get an idea of what greens were available
Tofu, negligible carbs, needing all the help it can get from the soya sauce infused with chili, and the betel leaf (?) it was served with. Didn’t manage the fermented anchovy sauce.
For a diabetic, the colorful drinks menu at Manzi, the artist-lead art space, cafe and gallery located amongst a leafy garden in an old house near the apartment, didn’t appeal and we had already had enough coffee to fuel a moon launch. The light eats were carb rich, however, we enjoyed the cozy atmosphere away from the frenetic streets.
Cafe Villa, lunch stop to rest weary feet. Ginger, garlic and lemon grass soup with a heap of bamboo shoots and strips of delicately flavored pork. Didn’t worry with the rice. Nothing crazy. Subtle flavours waiting to be uncovered.
