While corruption here remains very high, the government continues a policy of deregulation in order to attract foreign investment and maintain a high economic growth rate. The university student perspective we got from our guide was actually the highlight of this day for me. We continued on to see two temples celebrating four kings, that all died violent deaths around 1000 ad. While even the history of this period was interesting, it wasn't pleasant being packed in with so many other tourists. Before returning to Hanoi we went on an hour boat ride on the Tam Coc river, and got to bicycle along trails that cut through the rice fields. Other than feeling like we were in a tourist trap, the activities were nice. Traffic was bad though and it was just too much time spent in the car. After arriving back in Hanoi, Yesi and I got a great dinner recommendation of BBQ pork and crab spring roles. Yesi wasn't feeling well so we called it an early night.
