Vietnam: August 7th-8th Hanoi - various snaps

Thap Rua (Tortoise Tower) in Hoan Kiem Lake
Many buildings have these long passages between them going back some distance. In the past, people built so-called 'tunnel houses' that were narrow but went back a long way, since taxes were levied according to how much street space the building occupied.

Propaganda posters around the city
This is a sight seen all over Hanoi, and I can only guess it's some form of advertising with a phone number.
Sign inside Cafe Moca near St Joseph Cathedral
Some very narrow buildings in the Old Quarter
Early evening at Hoan Kiem Lake
