|Hanoi is a fabulous, yet tiring city. In light of this latter characteristic I will write this entry as though I am really tired. I leave it to you to decide if I am faking this feeeling.
-the streets here are as crowded as Saigon's - but narrower
-when you walk along no two steps are in the same direction - it is a skip, hop, turn, twist down the crowded street
-the people are nice and want to sell you things
-the Temple of Literature was beautiful - every city should have one of these
-Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum is closed on Friday so we don't go that day
-Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum is closed on Monday, too, but we go because we don't know and never see Uncle Ho
-don't ever stay at the Hanoi Capital Hotel. okay.
-the Laos embassy has moved.
-the food is good here
-sometimes its okay to do nothing in a foreign city, especially if there's two PremiereShip Football matches on SkySports
-the water puppet show was worth seeing, even if you don't feel one hundred percent
-Hanoi is a fabulous city.
