Traffic in Hanoi: If you stop, you die.... If you run, you die....

When hundreds of motor cycles and scooters come at you from all directions, it is a hair-raising experience to try to cross a street.  The very first morning we tried it, we were nervous wrecks.  Then we realized that you just need to walk into traffic and expect people tp slow down and drive around you as you cross.  Somehow that  seems to work.  We saw no accidents or even fender benders on the streets of Hanoi.
