Vietnam 34: Lunch and Street Scenes in Hanoi

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.

and sit beneath statue of V.I. Lenin
in the park.
