Hung ‘the heroic’

Rickshaw Driver

Rickshaw Driver

“the heroic”.
I think this rickshaw driver deserves his name. We just started a little tour through the old quarter of Hanoi when it started to pour down…I mean…in one moment you get grilled by the sun and all of a sudden the sky opens its gates. As quick as the weather changed my driver found his “rain cape” and an additional one to protect me and my camera equipment.
Being a rickshaw driver is a hard job. I tried to talk a bit with him….just got to know that he’s got a wife and 2 kids he has to feed. 1 hour rickshaw in Hanoi costs about 10.000 to 30.000 dong. Well, if you fight for a fair price. I’ve heard a lot of tourists get ripped off and pay about 60.000….damn!!….that’s about 2€!!! :-)
