March 27: Yangon to Hanoi

This is a travel day; no new interesting sights. We took Vietnam Airlines flight VN 956 and landed in Hanoi Vietnam at 2125, after sunset. We finally settled into our hotel room at The Silk Path Hotel after 2230, thankful for a chance to rest.

I’ll include here more of the portraits I took.
