Haertling meets Hanoi


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
 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.
