Hoàn Kiếm Lake

I crossed overland into Vietnam with mixed emotions, remembering those people who had traveled here before me under very different circumstances. What I found there was a staunch US ally with an overwhelming majority of the people having a favorable opinion of the US and Hanoi’s rich history that long pre-dates the conflicts with which my generation is more familiar.
