Photos from Vietnam, 2007 February

Ladies and gentlemen, hereby I oficially inform that Vietnam is much better than we actually expected. Three days in Hanoi were really well spent, and now we are taking a night train to the north - Lao Cai, Sapa, and finally - Fanxipan mountain, the roof of Vietnam, towering at 3143 meters.

At this point, let me stop the text flow, and let your eyes feast, as I still remember our promise of more photos.

Were are coming back in around 5 days, so keep tuned (i.e. keep bored), unless we'll find a free WiFi spot somewhere in the Vietnamese mountains.

Without further ado, I proudly present you the photo reportage from Hanoi.
