Hanoi Traffic

It is well known that crossing the street is the greatest danger to tourists in Vietnam. Although a bit intimidating at first, the trick is to take a deep breath, step off the sidewalk and pray that the cars and gazillion of scooters will just steer around you.  Walk at a steady pace, don't stop and if you're lucky like us, you'll end up right in front of a foot massage parlor.  Our friends agreed to join us (we were provided plaid boxer shorts when we walked in and told to change) and 70 minutes and $7.00 later, we were ready to walk just about anywhere.
