Hanoi traffic
November 16th, 2009 by Kate

There are approximately 500 motorbikes for every one car in Hanoi.  Yes the roads are this busy from 7am until well after midnight.  How do you cross the street?  You step off the curb given the slightest break in bikes, then you slowly but confidently keep walking.  You don't even need to really look over to see if you are going to be run over, you just keep walking slowly.  They all swerve around you.  I am amazed every time we make it across the street alive.  The girls can even cross by themselves!  It's like Dory in the ocean currents in Finding Nemo... just keep walking, just keep walking...
