An Englishman in Hanoi: Love at first sight

"I can’t say what made me fall in love with Vietnam - that a woman’s voice can drug you; that everything is so intense. The colours, the taste, even the rain. Nothing like the filthy rain in London. They say whatever you’re looking for, you will find here. They say you come to Vietnam and you understand a lot in a few minutes, but the rest has got to be lived." - Graham Greene, The Quiet American.
