Hanoi Day 1

We arrived safely in Hanoi after an”interesting” flight with Jetstar airlines?!

We have come to realise that the Vietnamese don’t queue. Our moment of realisation came as we queued to check in for our flight. I was a bit confused as all and sundry pushed past and in front of us but when 3 guys behind started dismantling the barrier to get past whilst pointing and laughing at us we gave up and just barged to the front and got served.

Hanoi feels very much like Ho Chi Minh though the pollution seems worse.

There is also the same incredible abundance of mopeds. Here’s a pic to give you an idea as to your typical moped usage…

Yes that is a fish tank.

Note the charge of the light brigade preparing to run the tourist over in the background!
We are off to explore now and will report back later.

    Jetstar’s like a Aussie Easyjet. My friend Kate was the face of their advertising for a while you know
