I have just returned from Vietnam and what a wonderful country: beautiful scenery, lovely people, great food especially pho and astonishing traffic. I was told there were 5million motorbikes in Hanoi for 7 million people. There are no discernible traffic rules. Imagine one of those motor cycle stunt teams with maybe a dozen members. They criss cross with great precision. Now multiply that by 100 and imagine maybe 1000 or 1200 motorbikes and remember that they have not practised and you have an idea.

However once I had overcome that overwhelming noise of them all beeping and travelling in all directions, from all directions the man in my life and I had a great experience.
