Vietnam Wins

The last day in Vietnam was electric.

Vietnam had reached the finals
of Under-23 World Cup Football.
Apparently they never make it so big
in the world stage so this was special.

 

It started late afternoon as big screens were set up
and Vietnamese people were glued to the screen
Anxious and hopeful as they prayed they would win.

While we had been following up
watching quarter finals in Hue train station
semi-finals in the Halong Bay cruise,
We made it to the streets of Hanoi
for the much awaited finals.

 

The situation was almost tense
The crowd had blocked the streets
and everyone was clad in red.

The mood was ecstatic
and we knew even if they lost
it would not matter because
the Vietnamese had already won.

The joy and excitement could not be contained
there was fireworks, honking horns
and lots of happy people that night
