A newby in My Diinh (Hanoi)
From finding an affordable hotel to a motorcycle - couldn't do it without local contacts.
Today's visit to the street with all those motorcycle shops was rather disillusioning. Not a single acceptable deal was offered. Instead, wrecked old Honda Waves with foot pegs talking of about 80,000 km of use while the odometer says 21,xxx. "Honda" Dreams made in China... Painted over old tires...
Perhaps foreigners should stay away and let a Vietnaamese friend do the buying?
