Rain in Hanoi

When it's raining here it really pours and the best thing to do is to find shelter and wait till it stops.

Some people are still out and about so they do make for some nice photo opportunities.

The longer reach of the Jupiter-8 50mm lens on the GXR came in handy and meant I didn't need to go out in the rain to take the photos. It also reminded me that I really need to get a waterproof camera to also use on my bike when driving without having to worry about it breaking.

Hanoi People

After just hanging out not doing much in the last days, at least other than people watching in front of the homestay here, I figured I needed to go for a walk.

Walking around the Hoan Kiem district and the lake is one of the best things to do in Hanoi if you just want to see people and life here.

Especially in the evening it's great because everyone will be out by the lake enjoying the views, quiet but also dancing, singing or playing together.

It's a great place and really nice to see the people all being out socialising or just having a great time.

Hue to Hanoi

Having to go to Hanoi and get a new passport is actually quite good since it will allow me to meet some friends while there.

Instead of flying, I decided to take the more comfortable option and travel by train. I also put my motorbike on the rain to have it while in Hanoi and do some road rips.

The scenery is always very nice so taking the train is the best option unless you're in a rush where flying is faster and also not really more expensive.
