Hanoi at 60

Not much different from Hanoi at 59 frankly - scooters still buzzing around. Only difference is that the temperature dropped today and its been slightly chilly. The locals, of course, have donned winter parkas.

Some Birthday treats:

  • flowers from our tour guide - lovely but not as nice as the 24 roses the Rex Hotel sent up to atone for the incident in the Health Club ( more about that later)
  • a birthday cake from the Sheraton Hotel - expect the picture to appear in their magazine
  • cooking lessons at the Metropole
  • a lovely dinner including Champagne
  • being with Laurent
  • the greetings sent by my friends and family - love you all!
