HOLY MOTHER OF CHRIST IS HANOI LOUD—now, with noise!

CAN YOU HEAR ME?! HELLLOOOO?

HANOI IS ASTONISHINGLY LOUD. I HAVE TO SHOUT IN MY OWN HEAD TO HEAR MYSELF THINK.

MOST OF MY THOUGHTS HAVE BEEN ERADICATED BY THE DRONE OF MOTORBIKES. IT’S LIKE VIETNAM HAS BEEN INVADED BY GIANT MUTANT KILLER BEETLES.

ONLY THIS LONE THOUGHT REMAINS: THE VIETNAMESE HAVE GREAT HAIR.

A SOUND FILE OF SAID NOISE TO FOLLOW WHEN MY COMPUTER GETS REPAIRED – THE LOGIC BOARD HAS FAILED AND IS AWAITING REPLACEMENT.*

HELLO? CAN YOU HEAR ME? WHERE ARE YOU? WHERE AM I? IS THIS REAL?

* and here it is, briefly, me being overwhelmed:

Hanoi Noise short

Now I need to lie down in a quiet place.

  1. Even though we have been out of touch for a while it is so amazing to get to experience this trip with you on your blog and through your photos. I am so happy for you and can’t wait to hear more/see more that you see/do/think. I have just signed a lease for an apartment on Degraw and Smith today so be ready to tell me details in person! Lots of love.

  2. Yay, neighbors! That’s so excellent. I wish I could be in NYC to welcome you back in person…

  3. Enjoying living the journey through you blog. Tom and I leave for an extended road trip in May. Never as exotic as yours but for me it will be all new. We’ll keep in touch with our border to border tour and continue to enjoy your national geo moments
