From the serene green of Mai Chau we’re thrust back into the hectic hustle and bustle of Hanoi with its waves of moped riders.
We’re nearing the end of this epic trip but we’ve still got a day left to go explore some more . . .
That can only mean one thing . . . MORE MARKETS!!!! Here we are in the night market in the centre of the old quarter.
I have had my eye on these tasty, colourful, frozen treats all week . . . not too sure how good they are for your innards but they look very pretty with their dry ice plumes . . .
Enjoy a close up of these water coloured, icy beauties!!! 🙂 🙂
And here’s the stall keeper, trying to studiously avoid catching my eye . .
The next morning I am still alive and not frozen solid internally so off we go.
First a little mild stalking of the basket carriers (it’s par the course now, like a daily habit) then off to check in again at train street as we want to see the beast in the day – but alas not the right time! Try again later . . .
A back street alley reveals a slightly rickety hot drinks stand.
And we spy piles of yet more mopeds – I wonder what they call a group of bikes? A rabble, a roar, a cacophony? . . .
Lots more of this vibrant city to come before we hop back on the plane!
