Traffic is a nightmare and it's an art of survival to cross the road. Hundreds and thousands of motorscooters going flat out, some with 3 people on them or 2 with baby in between. The secret is to keep walking at a steady pace and never stop or hesitate. They weave around you.
Food is good here and so far havn't got any tummy bugs. The hotel is old worldy and comfy, huge free breakfast everymorning, as much as you can eat.
Tomorrow we go to the hilltribes, then Halong Bay, Maybe wont find an internet for some time. Anyway rest assured I am looking after myself well and will be well looked after by our guide. Back in Hanoi next Monday. Weathers dry and nice temp, lets hope it stays that way.
