The moment my mother asked me if I wanted to go along with them on a trip to Vietnam, I immediately asked her if we would be visiting Hanoi, because I wanted to replicate this photo.

So when we were walking through the Old Quarter of Hanoi and coincidentally arrived at this square, I immediately recognised it and figured that the restaurant at the top of one of the buildings must have been the spot from where the photo was taken.

We went up to the restaurant and from memory I tried to recreate the photo the best I could. I think I succeeded quite well, although unfortunately the square wasn’t as crowded this time.
