A Central Asian cafe in Nha Trang
I found a Central Asian cafe in a small lane in Nha Trang. I ordered Okroshka, a cold soup with kefir (a fermented milk drink) or kvas (a beer like, but non-alcoholic drink prepared by fermenting rye bread), cucumber, spring onion and bits of meat.
There was a man from Tajikistan, we could exchange a few words in Farsi — Tajik and Urdu have several common words.
This lane has several Chinese run backpacker places that host Chinese independent travellers. The flavours and sounds — a mix of China, Russia and Central Asia reminds me of the silk route. This makes Nha Trang one of my favorite places to get lost in.
