Hanoi’s Old Quarter.

We flew back to Hanoi that evening where we’d spend the last 24 hours of our Vietnam trip. We did an 8 hour tour (marathon) of the city and surroundings on the backs of two Vespas. Pretty fun though it would’ve been more fun if we were allowed to drive them ourselves. On the upside, riding as a passenger allowed me to take some more photos. This was a pretty good experience if you overlook sucking down some serious smog (still hacking a week later). We started our trip home late that evening.
