IMG_1846 Not too many interesting sights in Hanoi, and most of them not well preserved. IMG_1854 The small island of Ngoc Son on Hoan Kiem lake is an exception, always crowded with foreign and local visitors. IMG_2027 Another view of Ngoc Son, with some modern bright colors. IMG_1864 Access to the islet, through a colorful gate. IMG_1869 A sight at the Ngoc Son temple. IMG_1855 The influence of french colonization is reflected in many houses, like here in Hanoi.
