Hoan Kiem Lake

If every country has a color, then Vietnam is green. I fell in love with Vietnam - the people, the culture, and the condensed-milk coffee that tastes like toffee. Below are pictures from around Hoan Kiem Lake, which is beside the Old Quarters, a crowded snarly mess of traffic, people, craft shops, and cheap hotels. A temple stood beside the lake, and another temple was in the lake.
