Aimlessly wandering the streets of Hanoi (in our inimitably dislocated fashion), we were slightly taken aback to see a Rickshaw Walla leap from his saddle in the middle of the street like a circus trick rider, (leaving his customer also more than a little flabbergasted).
Padding over to the street corner on which we stood, he reached behind a pile of refuse and tangled wires (some sparking) and pulled out this fine implement which he proceeded to ignite and pull on as if his grandmother’s life depended upon it.
Peddle on you crazy toker !
PS: finishing off this blog having snuck into the Sofitel, sitting on expensive drinks listening to a French guy called Henry who was the original guitarist in The Police !!! We LOVE Hanoi !
