About a one hour plane ride and we touched down in Hanoi the capital of Vietnam. The ride from the airport to downtown was crazy, thousands of motorbikes on the highway going in and out of lanes. We had a major traffic jam when about 30 cows and bulls were walking down the middle of the highway!
Xmas day we got up early and started to walk though the "Old Quarter" of the downtown area. All the shops were open with fresh food goods, jewelry, toys, clothes and many other items.
What was the most striking thing about city was the amount of people and the quantity of motorbikes! They drive all around like ants going here and there at high speed. In order to cross the street you just had to start to walk and just hold your breath!
