    I'm a overseas Vietnamese, I have gone farfrom my Vietnam hometown since childhood. Recently, I come back Vietnam, myhometown, on occasion of 1000 years Thanglong - Hanoi celebrate. It's a specialoccasion for overseas Vietnamese as me coming back hometown to reviewdevelopment of country. I and my friends (both overseas Vietnamese and foreign)set a team. We arrived in Vietnam on October 1st, meaned it's the first day ofcelebrate. Vietnam is really new and different from what I thought. It isn't apoor nation anymore, it's a beautiful and rich nation.
    People prepared a great palitial celebrate,the colourful flowers and lights were on every street, a crowded of peopletravelled busily. Hanoi was totally changed.
    We had lived in Hanoi for 10 days. We relaxedin Jyst Hotel, a small hotel on Hang Hom str. We had breakfast in Kitirestaurant, a restaurant beside Jyst hotel, and then we went for a walk aroundThe Old Quarter Street and Hoan Kiem Lake. The next day, we visited famousscenic in Hanoi such as Uncle Ho Mausoleum, Hanoi museum, Literature temple...and so many famous location in Hanoi... And until 7p.m, we come back hotel andhad dinner in Kiti restaurant. It was really meaningful when we were in Hanoion the special occassion. We joined art picture exhibition, played traditionalgames, learned Vietnamese and Hanoi traditional culture... It's so exciting!
    We had had 10 days to travel continouslyaround Hanoi and discovered everything in Hanoi. I love my hometown where mygrandmother was born. I'll come back Vietnam when I have spare time and I'llintroduce it to many friends.
