More from the very delightful Hanoi today..

We continue on our journey in Hanoi today.. 
 First things first.. a good basket of the yummiest pastries.. and some jam and juice.. mmm!

Flowers. flowers.. these look too good to be real! But they are! Lily massed displayed in foyer of Sofitel Metropole sure is a welcome sight when  you enter the hotel!
 And such friendly staff.. thank you Sofitel Metropole..
 No smiles though from the officials on duty outside this gorgeous old building
 Cleaning up sure can be back bending business!
 And carrying this fruit around all day.. not as light as it looks either! Brave friend Gill takes the pole!
 Glorious strawberries - I'd love this kind of shopping, when the produce comes you me!
 And the flower market as well..
 So many to choose from..
 On the streets of Hanoi.. where old have time to watch the world go past.. and not be alone!
 When the generation live together.. and assist each other..
 Hanoi.. where friends gather in the street fro a chat..
 And still more flowers being offered..
And this bicycle of crockery.. all very delicate.. and fragile.. yet.. nothing breaks!
 Hanoi of old..
 Aah Hanoi.. what a joy you are to visit.. from then to now. still AMAZING!
Get yourselves to Hanoi .. soon! 
Hanoi (Vietnamese: Hà Nội), the capital of  Vietnam, and also its second largest city, is a fascinating blend of East and West, combining traditional Sino-Vietnamese motifs with French flair. It is largely unscathed from the decades of war, and is now going through a building boom, making it a rapidly developing city in South East Asia.
