We really took our lives in our hands today – intrepid explorers in Hanoi. The city feels relatively safe except for the traffic which is completely mad. Bikes, cycle cabs, cars and pedestrians all jostle for position and never stop. Our guide told us just to step out and keep walking – eye contact is fatal. near death experiences normal! Here’s the view from our cycle cab – the poor man cycling Audrey, me and the shopping back to the hotel just about made it without a heart attck – I think the little seats are designed for 1 small Vietnamese person only!
