Back to Hanoi..

We arrived at our guest house at about 4.30 pm from Ha Long Bay. After taking shower, without wasting much time, we immediately leave for sight seeing as we were running short of time. We only have one and a half day to explore Hanoi City before leaving for home. Photo: Hoan Kiem Lake
I have a long list of interesting places which I plan to visit. I knew they are somewhere close along the Old Quarter, but walking down Hanoi street is quite confusing as they have too many small streets ahead, horizontally and vertically. Those streets are quite messy with lots of motorbikes, cyclist and cars hooting at each other. The best thing to do is to get a good street map.

Thanks for your comments, KB. To answer your question, YES, I am an addict. That's how I introduced myself in a meeting among us Recovering addicts. To outsiders, it may be a shocking exprience. We do that to remind ourselves who we were before - a specie nobody want!

Anyway, love your photos of Hanoi. God's willing I shall go there one of these days.

Happy New Year to you and family.

Greetings and lotsa love from Kuala Kangsar.
