We were very cold during the second part of our trip in Vietnam. Did not expect it could be grey, rainy and chilly at this time of the year. Best time to visit, we learnt, is April-May. So when I stumbled upon a store selling warm North Face jackets in Hue, I could not resist. Did they conveniently fall from a truck? Are they shameless copies, Made in Vietnam?

I don’t know, and I probably did something unethical by buying one for each of us (for about $70 total)…but we were really cold.
