Hanoi  July ’08   Nokia 6300

Hanoi has a lot of lakes. This is the big one, Ho Tay or West Lake. These shots were taken from the south end, I never went to the north end but there are some big hotels and shops there. This would probably be a nice area to live & there are a lot of apartment buildings with lake views.

I was there a few times & there were always guys fishing in the evening. They walk out through thigh deep water to fishing platforms. I did see a few guys catch some fish & looked at one in a bucket but I don’t know what type it was.

The swan pedal boats are very popular in Hanoi. Evey lake has them, except Hoan Kiem which I think is regarded as too important.
