Going For a Ride

I’m too lazy and busy to post a long, detailed blog entry, so I’ll just show you a couple pictures that illustrate why I love Hanoi.

Goldfish go for a motorbike ride.

  1. Great reminder of my time in Hanoi. I actually took several photos of amazing sights on motorbikes. Chickens in crates was my favorite but the goldfish are up there. Seeing 5 people on one bike was pretty high on my list of best shots too.
    Love your blog

  2. that is right up there with the guy in Amsterdam we saw, who was riding his bike while balancing a brand-new-in-box stereo system on his handlebars.

Hi, I'm Andy Engelson, a writer and editor who lived in Hanoi for five years and now lives in Geneva Switzerland. This blog is no longer active, but you can find more of my writing at The Lost Salt Atlas. I'm currently working on a historical novel set in the Northwest United States during World War II. In a former life, I edited Washington Trails magazine. I like to hike, travel, and play with my family.

Quotable

It is wrong, then, to chide the novel for being fascinated by mysterious coincidences (like the meeting of Anna, Vronsky, the railway station, and death or the meeting of Beethoven, Tomas, Tereza, and the cognac), but it is right to chide man for being blind to such coincidences in his daily life. For he thereby deprives his life of a dimension of beauty. — Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
