St. Joseph's Cathedral - Nhà Thờ Lớn Hà Nội
I flew up to Hanoi to work on a project, a project that I am rather bummed to say is not going as well as I would have liked it to.. lol. This morning I went for a walk to the BIG OLD CATHEDRAL of St. Joseph.

Photos from the last few days in Hoi An
In the process of walking to one place or another, I see things, things that for some reason I think look neat. instead of whipping out the big boy camera, I just take the phone and snap a photo of it and most time, just forget I even took it.
