Hanoi is a city probably best described in pictures. It's a chaos that one might fall in love with, or might drive one crazy. It's streets are quite the bizarre mix of those that are wide and tree lined, and others are cramped and frenzied. After a few days in Hanoi, you stop being surprised by anything here the capital of Vietnam. You'll find wildlife downtown, much as you would on a farm, only this is in a city of almost 6 million people. You'll eat the best meal you've had in weeks while sitting on a plastic chair in a restaurant just barely as wide as the span of your arms. It's quite surprising, really, the first time you try to walk these streets, with the impassable sidewalks full of motorbikes, restaurant seating, street vendors and often even burning waste. Pictures will speak louder than words.
