Since 2006, I had the chance to visit this wonderful country and its wonderful people 8 times already. Here is a collection of my favorite photos. I first landed in Hanoi in July 2006 not knowing what to expect. I was hooked the first minutes we went out of our hotel right in the middle of the Old Quarters. It was 06:15 PM…and it was already dark. That was my first surprise but not my last. The complete kaos around me was my second….motorbikes passing just a few inches from me, constant cacophony of their klaxons, the children running through all of this as if they were on a soccer field, feeling no danger at all. That was a total cultural shock. But a very pleasant one. Soon I learned to cross the street without risking my life, straight and steady being the secret.
