After I was finished capturing the rice fields, I saw this lovely man approaching. He was very generous in allowing me to capture his photo, but as I took his photo, he kept pointing to the scene behind me and saying, "No! No! Take pictures of the mountains!"

I can't quite put my finger on it, but there is something that makes Hanoi distinct from other cities in Vietnam. The differences between north and south Vietnam are subtle, yet undeniable. After slowly traveling from north to south, the whole of Vietnam has collectively morphed into one singular impression in my mind, but as I carefully think back on my experiences in the cities furthest south, I can begin to distinguish the characteristics that make Hanoi unique.

Much of life in Haiphong revolves around the sea, it's produce and the cargo transported on it. More than 2 million in population need the Gospel. Will you cross over? http://bit.ly/rachelsjourney #rachelsjourney

Morning exercise along the lake in Hanoi. Residents of the city are active in their lifestyle and give a lot of attention to exercise and recreation. See my travelogue at http://bit.ly/rachelsjourney #rachelsjourney

I jumped in the shuttle bus from the Hanoi airport without too much thought, and pulled out my phone to mindlessly scroll through my facebook feed. By now, I've been traveling for six weeks. I've seen mountains and beaches and rural villages. I've eaten pho and spring rolls and Vietnamese baguettes to my heart's content. I've made friends with college students and street vendors and village kids. I've ridden motorbikes, taxis, overnight buses, and planes. As beautiful as Vietnam is, I had grown just a little jaded as to just how spectacular it is to be here.

But when I glanced out that dirty bus window and saw the sun setting behind the mountains, I didn't feel like looking at my phone anymore. Suddenly I was reminded of just how blessed I am to be here, to be on this grand adventure, learning about the needs in Vietnam and seeing how God is working here. There are times when it's tiring, lonely, frustrating. But those times make it that much more special when I catch a spectacular sunset or get to share the gospel with someone who has never heard before. During my final days in Vietnam, I am making a conscious effort to fully enjoy every moment. #rachelsjourney

There is a side of Ho Chi Minh City that you will never see without some intentionality. The city population is something in the neighborhood of 10 million and in many areas it is extremely dense. But it is off the main streets down the alleyways (known as "hems" in Vietnamese) where you really see the city. See more at http://bit.ly/rachelsjourney #rachelsjourney
