So where did we leave off? Laos I think. Well we actually finished our trip in Vietnam but we never got around to posting anything about it..so here it goes.
Vietnam was great..one of the easier countries to plan our travels through..we started in Hanoi in the north and headed south.
Vietnam is the quintessential image of french Indochina. This is probably insulting to Vietnamese nationals who have fought several wars in the last century to secure their Independence from among others the French and the Chinese but hey..
Anyway, Hanoi is a cool old colonial city where modernity has intertwined itself with the old world in the form of cellphones, neon lights and narrow cobbled streets overflowing with mopeds.
In general Vietnam was one of the most photogenic countries we went to.
