watching them watch life go by ~ Hanoi, Vietnam
Nov 20 2001

Even after the pace of Hong Kong, we were unprepared for the cacophony that greeted us in Hanoi's Old Quarter. Cars are financially out of reach for the majority of Vietnamese but for less than USD2000 one can pick up a Honda Dream (literally and figuratively) - hundreds of thousands have done so. The narrow streets of the old part of this city brim with buzzing honking engines following the only rule of the Vietnam road, little ones yield to bigger ones.
