Turtle Tower, Hanoi 2010
Posted by larry (somewhere in, Singapore) on 26 January 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture.
A look at turtle tower in the middle of Hoan Kiem Lake.
We saw a crowd gathering across the lake, and when we reached the other side, the crowd was still there. Motorcycles would stop by the road side and its riders would join in the crowd.
They stared at the lake, as though waiting for something to happen. We were trying to take a peek when the crowd suddenly gasped in a chorus. Fingers started to point towards the lake. I caught a glimpse of the famously large and old Hoan Kiem soft shell turtle. It's supposed to bring good luck.
After a minute or so, the crowd sighed in unison.
The turtle had disappeared underwater.
Thanks for dropping by.
