Hanoi tastes of coffee. A thick, syrupy, almost a liqueur coffee. The air is thick too: thick with fumes, thick with cigarette smoke. The streets are blocked with vehicles, blocked with noise. Hanoi is a short intense coffee in a dark smokey bar with an overbearing soundtrack.
We visited Hanoi on a break from house sitting in October 2019. We marvelled at the city’s grey crumbling façades and visited Hỏa Lò prison, dubbed the Hanoi Hilton by the American servicemen held there during the Vietnam war.
