Ha Noi - Old Quarters

The old quarters is the busy and bustling heart of Hanoi. The traffic is intense, the motorcycles are contantly honking, street hawkers are everywhere. We loved it!
Street corner.

Baguette with grilled meat, served on the street.

Vietnamese worker. The traditional hat, dragon fruit in the baskets.

... the sidewalks aren't actually made to walk on, they're there to park your motorcycle on! :-)

It's not fancy, but personal, dirt cheap and really good. In one word, exotic.

Contrasts. The opera house and Hanoi Hilton hotel next to your normal city building...
