Hanoi, Vietnam

Hanoi, VietnamHanoi is brash, chaotic, noisy, and everything in between. Every time I leave the city after a long visit, I find myself longing for that kind of madness. It is busy and bustling during the day, and especially so at night when the bright and lively night lights from motorcycles, shops, bars, and restaurants fill the streets. I tend to abhor big city chaos in my travels, but with its glorious myths and legends, subtropical weather, cheap and delicious food, and its overall energy, I’m happy to forgive Hanoi for it.”
