Vietnam, Hanoi arrival – day 1

After a long flight we arrived the bustling city of Hanoi. Upon arrival we are met by our local guide Wuan and transferred to the Silkpath Hotel located in the city centre.  Once settled in we set out to discover the city with a walking tour in the neighborhood.  The streets are bustling with people and thousands of scooters. We use a funny term when crossing the road. Sticky rice. This means stick together and walk with conviction, no stopping or sudden movements or you might get hit by one of the scooters. What an experience.
The stalls are brimming with foods, clothing, flowers, vegetables, meats and much more. Little restaurants set up on the side walk, serving the popular street food.  It’s such an exciting place, full of activity.
We enjoyed a very delicious dinner at  Wild Rice Restaurant.  A little tired from jet lag we called it an early night , tomorrow is a busy full day of touring Hanoi.
