It is important to note that the old quarter is very much on the tourist circuit so a couple Americans wandering around isn't totally outside the norm. Hanoi is a very hectic city so most locals went busily about their way and barely gave us a second look. Some would approach with a warm smile and try out their English skills. All the locals we interacted with were friendly and helpful despite a very real language gap. The few Vietnamese phrases I learned drew laughs.
