the city that never sleeps

I never got sick of Hanoi, there was always something to look at.

It served as our base for the first portion of our trip and I was always mesmerised by the city itself and the constant stream of motorbikes, sights, sounds, food, smells, color - you never knew where to look. We spent a lot of early mornings just walking around the city, getting blisters, drinking coffee, crouching down on plastic stools and drinking too much cheap beer.  We toured the museums, witnessed tai chi and the mararena being done at dawn around the lake, splashed out in style in the French Quarter and truth be told, toured the shit out of Hanoi. I loved it.

Welcome home J+J. Missed you guys. I think I'm now going to repaint the house the same colour as the photo with the green shutters and ochre walls. What a great trip you had! Love.

These pictures are great. I've never been to Hanoi but it sounds like it has lots to offer. I love watching people do tai chi - I feel more relaxed by proxy. x

Your photos are gorgeous! We went to Hanoi about 5 years ago, and your photos really capture the atmosphere.
