54Trip End ??? ??, 2006
You know when you land in an airport and you see those guys in driver suits holding up signs for the likes of Mr Smith etc, the thought always passes your mind god I wish I was that important to have someone pick me up and not have to battle for a bus/taxi. Well we are that important, we got a pickup with a bloke in a little suit and a nice big sign on a stick, travelling is hard!
Well another country of the tick sheet and things are looking up, we got through the Christmas period and even managed to get a Christmas lunch.
I was wondering what to write about Hanoi as it is a beautiful city etc but I seem to say that about most places then it struck me that the most interesting thing about this city is the fact that it is just one big supermarket. Imagine if you will your local ASDA you have an isle dedicated to certain types of product ie wines & Spirits, Cereal, hard ware etc etc well Hanoi is just the same just on a bigger scale, instead of an isle you have streets dedicated to certain products to name a few you have a bags st, tv st, shoe st, sweets st, herb & Spices st and many many more and never can you find two opposite sort of goods within the same street, its quite amazing really and to top it off instead of trollies they have scooters and just like trollies the scooter have a mind of there own and go everywhere!!!
