Photographer's Note

Since the main train station is right in the heart of Hanoi city, it’s no surprise that the train tracks pass by busy streets and residential areas. The section of tracks that leads to Long Bien Bridge passes through Old Quarter, which is a densely populated area. The houses here are so close to the tracks that people could easily get smacked if they don’t watch their step, or decide to stick their hands out the window at the wrong time. Some residents are so used to the train that they just leave their bikes parked outside, inches away from the speeding train. Luckily, the trains go by only twice a day, and that's when the residents start to go indoors!
