Beware Hanoi roads at dusk

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 18 May 2005 | Views [3827] | Comments [1]

I was crossing the road (on a pedestrian crossing) in Hanoi at dusk. I was hit by a motorcyle driver who did not have his lights on and did not see me. I fell backwards onto my elbow and shoulder and then hit my head on the ground. I took a taxi to the Hanoi French Hospital for treatment where they gave me 3 stitches for my head wound, plus dressings to cuts and grazes to various parts of my head, arms, legs and shoulder. They took an x-ray of my chest but did not find any damage. They prescribed Augmentin for 4 days.
