Hanoi- Cyclo Ride to the Water Puppet Show
Mr. Cyclo Driver, you are about to get an excellent workout.
All the cyclos you see here are of our group. We went from the Metropole Hotel ( Jane Fonda stayed for two weeks in 1968 ) , past the Opera House, and then on a meanderering route through the old section of town. Seeing these ancient streets in the open-seated cyclo was almost sensory overload.
A headstone firm we passed
Through crowded streets and intersections...
Scenes that could have been from centuries ago
A long cyclo ride, but a great experience.
The Water Puppet Show, played to traditional Vietnamese instruments and song, was great fun
Puppeteers take a bow
