More than One Month in Haiphong and One Day in Hanoi

From March 17, 2015 to April 14, 2015, due to working on an international (Japanese) aid funded transport-related project for work, I stayed for more than one month in Haiphong and one day in Hanoi. (usually it would be the other day around, right?)

This was my second time in Vietnam and my first time in Northern Vietnam. The first time was last year when due to work purposes again, I stayed in Ho Chi Minh City for around one month.

One of the symbols of a typical Vietnamese city and Haiphong, a colonial French-style opera house, topped off with giant national flags and a portrait of Uncle Ho to show who is in charge these days.
