We keep on gravitating back to this chaotic, crazy little corner of Hanoi.
We are determined to see the flippin train come through if it’s the last thing we do!
So we grab our beverages, plonk ourselves down and wait . . .
While we wait we enjoy some people watching, cafe owners serve customers, families eat on the tracks and life carries on around us.
And then . . . joy of joys, as the dusk closes in, we hear it first . . . an ominous rumble followed by cafe owners hustling us away from the tracks.
And finally!!!! It arrives . . . thundering past at very close quarters! Terrifyingly close!! Apologies for the rather bad language but heck it was a bit hairy!!
