Hello all,   I've been here in this forum for a while but mostly as a viewer. This is my first thread here and I'd like to introduce to you guys about Hanoi, the city where I'm living. I know that it's impossible to depict a city only by a single person. Anyway, I will try to post and give captions; hope that people could have some information about Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam. If anybody of you has visited and want to share, feel free to post photos.   Here we go,   1. This is a w

Thanks Carlos,

 

I'm among the young generations of Vietnamese who were born after the war. I also always want to know what the Westerners think about that war, though nowadays the war obsession is quite fade for us, the young group IMHO

I switch to another theme: Old residential neighbourhoods in Hanoi

 

During the Soviet era (says 60s - 70s previous century), Soviet Union and East Germany had helped Vietnam to build many residential unit while we were still busy with the Civil War. I guess that were the huge improvement in terms of living condition at that time but at the moment, most of them are in serious deterioration. The City has been trying to demolish and rebuild them but there are still a lot remained in really bad condition. I am giving an example of "Van Chuong residential neighborhood", the place I've visited several times to document it.

 

9. Here is the facade of a apartment, you can have an idea how old it is.

10. The electricity odometers are located in front of each building

11. Normally, there is a common playing ground for several buildings. Not so big but enough for kids playing football or guys doing body buider

Welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing such wonderful candid photojournalistic shots of Ha-Noi. I will have to make time to go home for a long visit. I was born and raised in Saigon.

 

Thank you, Saigon now is the most developed city in Vietnam, you would be surprised next time you visit.

Welcome to the forum! Very, very good starter. Really love your BW images. But I have to confess that the color images are also great. Much enjoyed.

 

I should have posted more when I registered in this forum 5 years ago. I've happened to be appeared in another forum more often actually. Thank you!

      Urlaubsbilder aus Vietnam zum Ende der Regenzeit (Oktober / November 2018); im Einzelnen Bilder von Hanoi, von der Küste entlang des Südchinesischen Meeres und aus Ho Chi Minh – Stadt (Saigon).
       
      Im Gegensatz zu mutmaßlich allen übrigen Forenten war dies für meine Familie und mich die erste Asienreise . . . . . und auch wenn es banal klingt und schlechter Stil ist: die Reise hat alle meine Erwartungen übertroffen. Die bizarre, unwirklich schöne Natur, der warme Wind an den Stränden, das feucht – schwüle, sinnliche Klima und der Rausch der Städte mit dem herrlichen Duft von Asphalt, Benzin, Essen und Leben haben einen starken Eindruck hinterlassen.
       
      Photographisch hingegen blieb ich, teils aus Scheu, teils aus verdammungswürdiger Lahmheit hinter einigen Möglichkeiten zurück, darüber hinaus wollte ich die Geduld meiner Gattin und die ohnehin bestehende offene Entrüstung meiner Tochter für das geliebte Hobby nicht allzu sehr auf die Probe stellen. 
       
      Tipps und Tricks? Nun, eine oder zwei zusätzliche Speicherkarten und eine Kollektion aprilfrischer Microfasertücher (selb-vers-tändlich aus dem Leica Store) lösen alle Probleme.   
       
      Cheers, Shlomo
