The sights and sounds of Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi, were unlike anything I’ve ever experienced! I survived crossing the street on foot, which was far more of an ordeal than it sounds!
I toured Hanoi’s Old Quarter on a Vietnamese cycle rickshaw, or xích lô in Vietnamese (pronounced seek-low, from the French cyclo). Letting someone else pedal for a while!
Visiting Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum…”Uncle Ho” was the president of North Vietnam for 24 years, and fought for a united communist Vietnam. For such a powerful figure, he sure was short! I’d guess less than 5 feet.
