Hanoi – the city has a long history of Vietnam. Hanoi is beautiful and full of mysteries. Although time changes a lot of things but the ancient feeling still exist in every single things of this city. Trust me! If you get a chance, you should listen to Hanoi songs in the rain at least once in your lifetime.
I had travelled to Hanoi the first time in summer 2 years ago. When I was walking through ancient stress, suddenly it rained heavily. Everybody ran to find a place to hide the rain. I stood under the eaves of an old house, looked at people, and listened to the rhythm of therain. I just wanted to take it slow as there were so many wonderful things happening around me. I could smell the fresh and powerfully evocative scent of the rain, smoked cigar, watched people on the road. Middle-aged woman wore raincoat, they still walked through stress to sell donut and stuff, their voice was so special – beautiful and unique.
The place I stood is opposite no 83A Tran Quoc Toan. There was a small girl wore little white dress with long black hair went out. Everything was perfect: an old gray house, a small girl, and an yellow umbrella. In my mind, the song of rain just plays a special music.
Another rainy day, I went to the Cathedral in Nha tho Street, I met that Vietnamese girl again. She had a sweet smile. I couldn’t stop looking at her. I came to say Hi. She was so friendly, she said she worked for a travel agency named Eviva and she saw me stood in front of her company last time.
Our first date was on a rainy day and our weeding was on a rainy day too. That is the story of how I felt in love with her, with rainy day in Hanoi.
