Woo! I’m in Hanoi, after a long day’s travel via Bangkok from yesterday. It’s warm and the air is soft with humidity. We’re staying right in the Old Quarters, and are about to walk around the lake and work our way down the street of cafes. I haven’t had a chance to do any reading so it’ll be an opportunity to work out what I want to see in Hanoi.
Meeting Mum at the hotel and going for dinner was almost surreally normal. The next couple of days will be interesting.
