■ VIETNAM, HANOI: The first thing I did after landing in Hanoi after checking in to my hotel was to hunt for a gym. A few blocks away from my hotel I stumbled upon a gym center call California fitness. I didn’t stay there for long though as the receptionist told me they charge $22 for a single day pass!
So back to the hotel I went as I refuse to pay that to work out for an hour. Back at the hotel they told me that there are gyms in some parks around Hanoi. The search was now on for one of these free outdoors gyms.
