More, Hanoi, Vietnam, Shopping & Old Time Photos

What would Traveling be without shopping?

We visit the open area street markets and the many stores in buildings just north of the Hoan Kiem Lake and just opposite the water puppet theater. Here are regular stores

You can buy just about anything, but it takes a lot of walking. Here are the outdoor stalls.

Looking back over one of the streets.

Danuta looking for goods as well.
