Hanoi by Vintage Russian Minsk Motorbike
It is with a sense of trepidation that I scramble on to the back of a vintage Russian Minsk motorbike. I hold on tight to my poor guide and brace myself as we emerge into the traffic that races along at pace. Suddenly, I realise that I am grinning from ear to ear; this isn’t scary, this is fun, this is exhilarating! I start to take in my surroundings. We zip up narrow side alleys lined with children playing and washing hanging between buildings. We see local industry at work, drink local coffee, try mouth-watering street food, visit markets selling every part you would ever possibly need to fix a moped. I do not see another tourist. This is a different side to Hanoi.
