Hanoi in B&W-3

ABOVE:  Train track in middle of Hanoi, Vietnam. I was on my way to see some sightseeing area and walked passed this and literally did a double take on it. It was right by a very busy/main street where a lot of cars, motor scooters, and pedestrians walk by. I guess this train track gives the city a bit of unique aesthetics.
