Vietnam for Christmas! Day 10 - Hanoi

Our last day in Vietnam was spent walking around Hanoi again. This time with a wider berth. I think we'll do this in photos again...

Military dudes walking up and down the sidewalk in front of the Federal Government Office.

A sunlit street.
This is about as close as we got to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
Lotus flowers. I think.
The Temple of Literature was really beautiful.
It's turtles all the way down!
Large Bonsai trees in the Temple of Literature.
A door that Alyssa freaked out over.
The old prison over looked by the new office tower.

  1. Awesome photos! Thanks for sharing--this made me feel like I'd been strolling the streets of Hanoi too :)

  2. Okay, time for an actual comment instead of a few words. haha

    It really does seem like you had a great time there. It's gorgeous and the food looks so interesting. If I ever get a passport and a plane ticket, I'll be asking you for advice on where to go, just so I can see those places for real.

    1. Vietnam was totally awesome. There are so many amazing places on this planet. You definitely need to get a passport and start exploring! And of course, I'd be more than happy to give any advice!

  3. I loved Hanoi too and was so enchanted by the city and people. Your pics are gorgeous. I discovered your blog via A-Z challenge and am looking forward to reading your musings. Good luck with the challenge.

    1. Thanks so much! Hanoi is great. Enjoy the April Challenge!
