The United States and Vietnam have been negotiating a bilateral trade agreement for the past several years.  This trip marked the sixth round of negotiations.

The highway from the airport is quite modern.   After you cross the Red River on this impressive-looking concrete bridge the highway ends and you get dumped off into some very run down back streets.  Welcome to Hanoi indeed! vnwelcome.jpg (21716 bytes)
