« « Pause. In. Hanoi.
Goodbye Hanoi » »

Hopefully you’ve read my previous posts without video – so I’m going to limit this post to mostly just videos and not much text commentaries.

 

Streets of Hanoi:

 

Women Are Better at Navigation:

 

Crossing the Streets of Vietnam:

 

Tour of the Caves:

 

I thought that the tour of one of Ha Long Bay’s caves would be geologic in nature and have interesting pieces of information on its formation, etc. However! This is what we had instead.

 

He asked afterwards if we all saw what he was pointing at. One of the Frenchmen on the trip plainly said, “No, I have a French imagination,” and looked absolutely confused.

Maybe it was just funnier at the time.

 

Ha Long Bay:

I didn’t get any videos while kayaking among the karst landscaping in the bay – decided that it was best not to take electronic devices inside a kayak. But I can assure you that it was absolutely beautiful and that Calvin and I kayaked farther than any of the other boats.

There are two more videos that I do not have the patience to upload right now… I have been sitting at this computer for the past two and a half hours trying to upload these things.

 

— 5 HOURS LATER —

Due to our continued delay in Hanoi – I took the opportunity to document our sampling of a real Vietnamese Bahn Mi. Due to our exceptionally long bus trip – I haven’t had the opportunity to upload anything until just now. Enjoy our Bahn Mi’s vicariously through these videos!

 

Also – we ran into those Quebecois again in Hue – Corinne and I took the opportunity during our 4 hour transit layover to go to a hotel to shower. $2 USD for a short break, a shower, and an opportunity to recharge electronic devices before another 30 hours on a bus. I think it was worth it. But in any case – the two guys were staying at the same hotel that we chose to shower in – definitely ran into each other in the lobby.

But seriously, probably won’t see them again.- At time of posting in Ha Noi, it was 89.6 °F
