When I moved to Norway 18 years ago, I really knew next to nothing about Norge. But what I was sure of is that Norway was rubbish at the Eurovision Song Contest and that the indigenous parrots were blue and plunged into depression if deported from their natural habitat. Turns out neither of these facts is true. (This man used to live in the house next door to us, though tragically enough for all concerned, before we moved in).
The state of my knowledge about Hanoi at the beginning of 2011 was probably on a par with my prior knowledge of Norway. So, for the past few months I have, amongst other things, been reading a few blogs written by expats living in Hanoi, although one has now retired his blog, and two others are now leaving Hanoi. Room for my blog then, haha.
Here’s a shout out to the blogs I have learnt about Hanoi from:
and my favourite:
Thanks for the intro to Hanoi, and good luck with it all
