I had a few photos left over to post from my time in Hanoi, Vietnam, so here they are below. I have to say I was really taken with the city (along with the excellent French bread available everywhere), and I believe I should come back some day to experience some of the nature.

Making wishes for the future

And I thought the tangle of cables under my desk as bad
Advertising on the walls for tradesmen and other services
Ho Chi Minh’s shrine
A lady walks through the square – the weather was hazy but her had somehow stood out
Cell phone usage, like everywhere else in the world, seems near universal
Views out of the airport across what is surely the shiniest floor in Asia
