I was born here. Is it why I love Hanoi so much? I don’t know. But the truth is: there is something special about this old Vietnamese capital that makes you feel special when you here. You start to think about the past, about history. You start to look closer at old house facades, the way people walk at sip their coffee on the street pavements. As for me, I felt this familiarity as if I knew this place for centuries. Or it is simply because things have been here for centuries? I thought I was somehow in a dream. A good one.
