Crazy Electrical Wiring in Hanoi, Vietnam

I thought I was the only crazy person who took photos of electrical wiring. But the power lines in Hanoi are so insane they are even featured on t-shirts and in paintings!

  1. I thought the same thing when I was there. I can’t believe a lineman can actually figure out what’s what. It looks like a dangerous job. I saw the same sorts of wiring messes in parts of Delhi, and to a lesser extent in Bucharest. I’m amazed there hasn’t been a massive overload and giant fire.

    • It actually works really well. I have seen wiring almost as bad as this in both India and Mexico, and both places were prone to brown-outs and power failures – something we never experienced in Vietnam!
