New Years Eve in Hanoi was a big street party downtown by the lake. We had to walk several blocks to get there, but the excitement was well worth the effort. My camera was not capable of capturing scenes of the massive crowd gathered in front of the bandstand, so the photos that follow are mostly of stragglers toward the back of the crowd.
We left Vietnam the following morning. A couple of New Year's Day photos are also included.
