From a rickshaw in Hanoi...

Hanoi, Vietnam
One of my favourite things to do when we travel to a new city 
is to take random shots...quickly and hopefully. 
Always hoping that I will come out with something that will capture
 the essence of what I experienced.

No matter where you travel around Vietnam, 
you are sure to be totally absorbed by your surroundings. 
It is hard not to be. It grabs all the sense, takes hold and pulls you in.
Willing or not, you will not forget it. 
My advice..if you travel to Vietnam, take advantage of every opportunity.
Seize the moment!

Most times, people pass like the speed of light...
they will give you a  'toot toot' to let you they are coming through. 
You have to be ready at all times.

See what I is full on.
I prefer the bicycle as a mode of much calmer.

I took most of these photos while being driven on a cycle rickshaw.
You do not have to travel far to find one,
they will most likely find you first.

Then again...there is always...bicylces for two. :)
