In spite of coming from many different provinces and perhaps only knowing Hanoi through visits, working visits or even just through books or stories told by relatives and friends, when living far from the homeland, they as well as those who were born and raised in Hanoi, have in common a love for and nostalgia about Hanoi.

During the exchange, many songs about Hanoi were performed by amateur singers. In addition, they also together enjoyed dishes of Hanoi and ebullient games. In the warm and happy atmosphere, the participants recounted their memories and nostalgia about Hanoi.
