Hanoi Old Quarter

A few things we quickly learned about exploring the city!

Crossing the street is an act of bravery, the key is to stay consistent and not stop moving. You may see crosswalks but they mean nothing.

I was under the impression this time of year was slightly cooler. That is false. It may not be noticeable by the pictures, but the heat (90 degrees) and humidity here is no joke. I don’t even want to know what it’s like in the summer. We are permanently living in sweat.

My favorite find of the day was this ceramics store in a beautiful building.

Tonight we take a sleeper bus to Sa Pa for two days of trekking. It’s likely we don’t get service till we get back!


  1. What an adventure – looks so cool. Wish I can do this one day too.

  2. I agree with Marise about Isa and the skirt! 😉
    The whole adventure looks amazing!
    Great pictures!!

  3. That bike with the flowers is amazing. You guys have barely arrived and are already having stacks of fun, very jealous. Am I mistaken or do I see a significantly skinned down Ssmuel ? Looking good !!!!!!

  4. Isabel, you look so cute in that skirt.
