Ha Noi Shops

Our digs is just on the edge of the Old Quarter. Up the street, only quiet from one to six in the morning, are a few silk shops and slightly higher end clothing shops, like all the others bikes parked on each side of the pavement.

Opposite, the al fresco barber shop. Our end of the street is all about paint. Many, many paint shops.

Across the road from our end of the street are the steel shops. Boxes, cookware and anything that can be needed for ....anything.
Pot production shop.

Bit of welding. A new flue, we bet that went straight on the back of a bike. We did pass a hotel with a concierge helping a receptionist ‘Selotape’ a box on the back of her bike. There seems to be nothing these people cant or wont try, to accomplish shifting on two wheels.
The busiest shiny shop of all.

Fruit and hosiery.
Opposite the lake was a very busy bag shop.

Moving to the shoe area, every kind of casual to knock off ‘posh’.

Coffee, the country simply doesn’t have enough civet cats to produce the number of Kopi Luwak jars, packets and sachets on sale. On the corner a foot spa complete with a step that was a fish tank. No health and safety issues here with the feet nibbling fish.
Bag shop.
Bit of a surprise when we bimbled past a grandfather and clock shop.

Remote control shop. Had to have a little stroke in the fridge shop, especially the plastic freezer....

Street food, literally. A choice of tripe.

We found a supermarket being built around us, we had to step over a man trying to cut a plastic cover.
Sunglasses street.
No matter how young, a full day at work.

Our favourite, somewhere under the basket shop a bicycle.
