Every year in July Kyoto celebrates the Gion Festival. It is probably the oldest and most famous annual festival in Japan and attracts visitors from all over Japan and beyond.
My flight took me from Munich to Moscow and then I took the connection flight to Ha Noi. The journey was rather fatiguing and I’m experiencing a strong jet lag now.
Arriving in Ha Noi, I just got around a little, checked in to my hostel and purchased a Vietnamese SIM-Card. I had a first glimpse on the city and I’m already very impressed. The food tastes awesome (as expected), the streets are crowded and everyone is always using his horn (just beautiful noise).
When I was relaxing at Hoan Kiem Lake, a student approached me and asked for some help with his English studies. The people here are amazing!
Tomorrow I will do some sightseeing. Pictures will follow soon.
