Vietnam • Looking back at Hanoi

Hanoi may be a bustling city but it has the strong, lingering presence of salakot and native hat-wearing denizens like this man who ply the street not on foot but by pedal power. A look back at this city swarming with motorbikes, bicycles, sellers of all sorts of wares, steaming pho even in the small alleys, and great coffee anywhere.

kaya kaya nyang itayo yan ng hindi nya hinahawakan? astig din talaga ang mga locals dyan. sa atin kasi yung mga ganyan nasa kareton or binubuhat na aparador.

dom, you'll be surprised at what the vietnamese carry on their bikes and motocycles. the heaviest we've seen is a big refrigerator! meron pang dalawang malaking buhay na baboy! it's their regular mode of transportation kasi

naku, i had to avoid looking into his direction millie. baka alukin kami ni ferdz ng mga paninda niya, hahaha. but totoo, he registers well sa camera and his wares are very interesting subjects :-)
