Great Royaldevon 2019-08-05 1:57

Hello Gert,

Life in the fast lane!
I wonder if the lady is navigating, or a has a bell to alert pedestrians to the vehicle!
The tricycle demands attention and is strongly placed but, once you notice those two youngsters, maybe planning mischief, they grab equal attention!

You have shown us a fine series of the busy life in Hanoi.
Cycles seem to be the transport preferences, which is fine for ease of use, lack of pollution and easy to park.
I wonder if the situation is like this today!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Thank you Bev,
I think the buildings in the old part of Hanoi look the same today as in the early 1990's, but there is sure to be a lot more motorbikes and cars. The pollution has obviously increased dramatically.
Kind regards,

Hello Bev and Gert,
I was in Hanoi in the end of 2011, so many years later. I have an impression that in the Old Town it looked more or less the same. I stayed in a hostel in the heart of the Old Town, so I had similar view from the window. Probably more motorbikes than just bikes, often overloaded, with the whole family on one, also the tricycles or kind od rickshaws, few cars. I remember a heavy traffic but I do not see it in my pictures. Maybe I was scared.
Have a nice evening
