Holy Puppets. I'm one month minus one day behind with posting. NOT GOOD!
So there might be a few posts containing mostly pictures and mental notes (i.e. truncated text) to catch up.
|Moon over Hanoi|
When in Hanoi, a visit to the water puppet show is a MUST. The theatre is right by the lake (restored sword) and if you don't get the tickets yourself, your hotel staff will send a runner to get one (!). Cost: $5.

|Hoping there won't be any giants coming in late|
|music and voices|
|An instrument unlike any I have ever seen! She plays it almost like a Theremin!|
It's too dark to take decent pictures, so here are just a few:
|dragons spitting fire|
|flooded fields being ploughed|
|wise turtle stole sword from warring party|
The show lasts 45 minutes and I wasn't bored for a single second. Even though vocals are in Vietnamese, the choreography makes it obvious what the meaning is.
HAVE to go again next time I'm here ;-)
