HANOI IMAGES

In response to requests of general images here are some street scenes from Hanoi. We ended up staying in three different hotels in Hanoi (all good, all cheap) and since the third one was in a slightly less chaotic location we ended up feeling a bit more peaceful about the city. Let's just say it was a Big contrast after the serenity of Japan!

Typical 'street squat' restaurant. As you can see, the businesses (and parked motorbikes) take over the sidewalks so you end up walking in the traffic - which never stops.
