Good morning Vietnam!!!!
I arrived into Hanoi yesterday after an 8 hour bus ride over the border.
First impressions are that this country is REAALLLY beautiful!!!!!!!! Firstly the mountains were all around me with little houses and farms built at the bottom. After about another hours driving we went through the rice fields, and this place is really postcard icture place it was amazing just rice field after rice field with the women working away with those conical hats(need to cop me one of them!)
Hanoi itself is motorbike city i have never seen so many scooters in my life! A cool way to ride across city i love it!
Another thing i have noticed is that i really have set upon the backpacker trail now! Everywhere are westeners and backpacks! It really is strange, especially coming from China! haha
I have 6 days to kick around Hanoi and take a trek though the north for a few days, before my sister Antonia comes to visit me on the 3rd for a week.
