Hanoi, Vietnam, taken on December 29, 2015
My tour of Hanoi included a ride on a cyclo through the old quarter of the city. It was quite an experience navigating through the busy streets on this three-wheeled vehicle, and I was glad that the elderly gentleman who rode the cyclo knew where he was going as I would have certainly gotten lost if I were to wander around by myself, not to mention probably being hit by one of the countless motorbikes! (See the original photo in colour.)

There is art to be found in every corner of Glasgow, including a mural of a crocodile literally at a corner by a bridge near Charing Cross – a rather fierce and menacing addition to the urban scene!
Bordeaux, France, taken on January 1, 2011
When I lived in Bordeaux, I passed by a street where white discs were sticking out from the surrounding walls. I had been curious about them for the longest time and till now I don’t understand what they are. Maybe…it is just a peculiar piece of art?!

In Toronto, I don’t take the streetcar often even if I do go downtown, though I would like to avoid the necessary evil that is TTC altogether (which is nearly impossible). However, last time I was in Toronto, I hopped onto one of these very colourful streetcars, and with the old city hall as a backdrop, it actually looked quite cool!

After having a nice burger at Ketchup, my friend and I stepped out to see the beautiful Ashton Lane by night. Lovely place to eat and have a drink with a buddy!
