A day in the life of the Old Quarter of Hanoi

I spent a delightful day, walking, walking, walking, all over the Old Quarter of Hanoi. It was very easy to get around with a map. All the roads are marked with signs and the city is quite clean and the traffic is relatively tame (after India).

Cyclo and driver

street vendors selling jackfruit and water chestnuts
