After breakfast four of us wondered down the road down to the Army Museum, there we sore plenty more revolutionary spiel and propaganda. In addition a few tanks and planes parked inside the museum including a Huey and a Jeep apparently used by the South Vietnamese puppet president – but it looked brand new and unused with a couple of old jerry cans and radios attached. We climbed the monument tower, for some not so spectacular views of the city. Had an early lunch then minus ne member of our group went looking for the revolutionary museum but found he national museum – which was full of even older things dating a few thousand years and  plenty of old bones and pieces of pottery. After we walked out we found the Revolutionary museum and I went in alone while the others went back to the hotel. The museum was pretty much the same and missing huge swaves of post 1975 Vietnamese history. Got a bike back to the hotel and later on we walked down to the main station. Dropped our bags onto the train and popped into lotteria burger a South Korean Chani and had my namesake burger Tom burger (shrimp burger) before getting on the train and onto Hue. Onboard the train the air condition levels varied immensely as did the temperature walking down to the dining cart was also a bit of an adventure, nevertheless unlike most of the other group managed to get some sleep.
