I was in Hanoi for 2 weeks, because it was a place that felt like home the moment I arrived there. The buzz of the thousands of motorbikes, the momentary bliss at the city cafes, the energy of the Old Quarter, the smell of Bun Ca guiding me towards it like a missile. The city has this sensual allure, especially in the evening. My favorite activity was to ride on a motorbike through the backstreets of Hanoi at night. All I have to decide now is when I will be back.
