Hello from Hanoi

Arrived in Hanoi yesterday evening, went out for a walk, but everywhere was closed due to the cerfew that is imposed in the city. So came back to the hotel and crashed. Staying in the Hanoi Sports Hotel, great value; $30 a night for the four bed air con room with free breakfast and Internet.

Today started to explore a bit. Visited a pagoda in the middle of the lake and wandered round the town to see the sights. It's a stunning place, so many scooters, very humid and very busy. Did a bit of Market browsing, some very interesting products, bought a bright yellow Casio watch and Jessie bought a bag.

Going to the water puppets tonight. Then heading off to Halong Bay early tomorrow morning after seeing the central lake at dawn.
