As Ho hugs the Statue of Liberty
Traders trade and
Young locals dance to American Music
but in the temple by West Lake
All is serene
It was a cool January day in Hanoi and I decided to take a walk around West Lake. This is the largest of the many lakes that are in Hanoi. Being mid January the preparations for Tet were beginning and there was activity all around the lake. The 17km walk took most of the day as I took in the sites and indulged the culture and Vietnamese coffee along the way.
