Photographer's Note

Now the travelogue four fat old ladies in Vietnam.
After Burma hanoi seemed to us not so exotic, modern and noisy. The pubs with karaoke are everywhere. We stayed in the hotel in old city. I expected it would be cozy quiet atmosphere. I was totally wrong. The big Hanoi population is estimated as 6,5 milions and everyone has a motobike. I felt quite loss. I stood on one side amazed that there were no traffic rules and couldn't go to the other side seeing all these bikes coming at me.
In lunch time the people sit like this, on the low plastic chairs. The food is cheap and good. In the Vietnamese repertoire, beef pho noodle soup is a classic. In fact, it's practically the national dish of Vietnam. Other popular meal that I like very much are spring rolls. In Warsaw we have many Vietnamese bars and they are called in Polish "sajgonki". So we had usually pho and sajgonki.
