Hanoi night conversation

September 28, 2008

night panning Hanoi

Something I noticed in Hanoi is that the road is treated as an extension of the footpath. Locals grow up on motor scooters & bikes, so they are totally comfortable whether steering or as a passenger & everyone understands how the traffic flow works. They tend to ride at a moderate pace, say 30 or 40kmh. This gives people the chance to have conversations as they ride, just as you might walk along with some friends while having a conversation.
