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.

Leaving Thailand for a dose of socialism

Today we say bye-bye to the City of Angels - Bangkok, hop on the Air Asia flight and fly to Hanoi, Vietnam.

As we (Jurga and me, at least) have been to Thailand 3 years before, it is somewhat mixed feelings while on a flight to Vietnam.

Little bit scary, as we have never been in the country and the socialism / communism is something that is not remembered lightly by the inhabitants of the country that was still occupied until 16 years ago by Soviet regime.  READ MORE »
