The best banh mi in Vietnam?

This place in Hoi An’s old city came highly recommended and it was damned fine.

Tuffy P had hers with just egg, veggies and chilies… 

…while I had mine fully loaded…pate, various meats, crunchy pork skin, eggs, veggies, chilies.

Feet in the ocean

Rain stopped and it theatened to clear up by the time we stopped in Da Nang in Central Vietnam for lunch. It was still cool but I couldn’t resist getting my feet wet in the sea. This is the so-called China Beach where scores of American troops landed during what the Vietnamese called the American war.
