Tet Road Trip - Cua Lo to Hanoi
We had quite a long drive to make it to Hanoi by the evening but we made good progress and thanks to quite empty roads in parts it was easy to drive fast.
A detour however added an extra hour to our journey and Google maps again decided the best way into Hanoi is to go through every single small village and narrow road instead of staying on the main roads.
The detour also meant we couldn't really enjoy the great scenery around Ninh Binh as much as we would have likes as it got late.
Still, we made it to Hanoi by dinner time and after dinner and some beers we were taking it easy and enjoying the new year celebrations here.
New Year is certainly a different celebration here than it is in Europe but it's very interesting.
So let me wish all Vietnamese friends a 'Happy New Year 2017!' or 'Chuc mung nam moi!'.
