... the absolute highlight so far


forget bangkok... i have hell of a hotel room, and the walk through the old quarter - where i am staying - was crazy! a busyness like i've never seen before! and it's not the tourist scene that's busy, it's the locals... packed on motorbikes, in streetfoodstalls, in shops... everything is on the move... it's seedy, dodgy, colorful

i just had an amazing doener kebap for about 80 swiss rappen

there are fake dvd shops everywhere, almost as cheap as in shanghai

this is absolutely fantastic... i will use my 30 days visa for hanoi & sidetrips to sapa and halong bay alone hehe

hotel room: 6th floor without lift, but hey... hell of a view over hanoi... aircon, sat tv, minibar, telephone, hot shower, a ton of lockable drawers, clean, big bed, breakfast included, nice view, and... officially free wireless... awesome! almost as good as my good old consulting-days hotel rooms... for 15usd... prince hotel, definitely recommended!

got some problems with the airport pickup but he showed up at least and it cost me only 1/3 of the price in the end, so all is good!

will write more once i've down from my hanoi-high... can't wait to explore tomorrow, plan my trips based here, plan vietnam and will get so bloody drunk on the 8. on 2000 dong beer in the streets...

groovy baby!
