Maggie's Hanoi Trip

by Dr. Maggie Phillips - February 21, 2010

I visited Vietnam (Hanoi) for the first time and would like to share what I learnt about the extreme sport of crossing the road in a sea of motor bikes. Do not attempt to run the gauntlet. Walk slowly and deliberately on the diagonal towards the oncoming traffic. Look occasionally over your shoulder even in a predominantly one way street. If terror or panic sets in, stop dead still and pretend to be an object. The locals are adept at manoeuvring around objects."
