    Hoan Kiem lake

    January 23, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Saying my goodbyes with a 8km sunset run around the Hoan Kiem Lake (Vietnamese: Hồ Hoàn Kiếm, meaning "Lake of the Returned Sword" or "Lake of the Restored Sword"). This is in the historical center of Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam and a walkable distance of our hotel. It was a gorgeous evening out specially with all the gardens and new year decorations. There were two western guys that were also running, they high5'ed me each time we passed each other. 5 laps =5 miles we met about twice on each lap . It gave me a false sense of safety- weird how "common ground" brings comfort.
    Loads of tourists and locals around this scenic public spot, lots of action to take my mind of the run and just keep going.
