After my solo tour of the Hanoi Hilton, I rejoined Murphy for lunch at a local cafe and snapped a couple of street scenes. Our guide left us on our own after lunch and we headed to the Vietnamese Military Museum.
|Apartment house in Hanoi. I took this photo to show the|
rat's nest wiring which is common in Vietnam.
|The Christmas tree at the cafe where we|
had lunch. Remember, Vietnam is
officially a communist country.
|A view of the cafe. It was not very crowded, probably|
because the food was not that good. (I'm sure the
guide got his lunch free for bringing us there!)
|Young men on motorbikes weaving through traffic|
|More motorbikes in Hanoi|
|And you'll look sweet, upon the seat, of a|
motorbike built for three!
|And they're off!|
|The bike congestion was unbelievable all over|
|More bike traffic. Again, note the electrical wires.|
