VIEW OF HANOI
I've just been to Hanoi to take hundreds of photographs, and a what a great city it is for a photographer. English is rarely spoken, and it's certainly a Communist country. The national flag flies everywhere, and twice a day the government provides a message to its people via a loud speaker system. What's it like as a city? Very cold, but the people don't seem to mind. Even at night, they walk around most areas, eat, drink and enjoy themselves. So, check out these photographs and you will get the picture ... So to speak.
Clancy's comment: Hope you got some idea of Hanoi.
