Only in Vietnam #7 29 April 2010

Not sure if it is really ‘only’ in Vietnam, but here goes…

On Tuesday evening, on my way to a restaurant with a friend, we got stuck in a freak-spot of traffic. All the motorbikes and cars and trucks were flowing nicely everywhere, except for at the entrance to Long Bien bridge, where everything was at a complete stand still. It is not an uncommon occurrence for Hanoi traffic, but the next day I discovered why –

A body had washed up on one of the banks of the Red River, and the monster traffic jam was caused by everyone stopping to stare. Apparently, there was a complete standstill on both ends of the bridge, as well as all along the middle of the bridge for several hours.

It made me sad.
