A week in Hanoi is not enough, a rushed trip to Halong Bay and visits to the Museums give an impression that reflects the delightful people of Hanoi. After 75 years of occupation and war in the 20th century I had expected a somewhat bitter response but the people have triumphed over adversity and this ancient culture is optimistic about the future. A place I will go back to, particularly Hanoi, still a comparatively poor country, the people have a culture and resilience that is unique.
