I am honestly at a loss of words on how to describe Hanoi. Busy, hectic, crazy, energetic, none of those words begin to help me describe the fast pace way of life here! Walking across the street is one of the most intimidating things to try and do… You look at no one, as cars and scooters zoom by and you pray you aren’t hit! Super insane!

Today we saw the city, saw the markets, smelled all of the different smells, tried to take it all in, and that was not easy. After living in NYC for 12 years you would think that it would not be so overwhelming to me, but it was. After lunch I had to come home and sleep for 4 hours before dinner. Tomorrow we leave for Halong Bay and I am more than excited to see the land of limestone islands and huge ships with gorgeous red sails!
