A reasonably late start today, after breakfast the group with our guide Houn an we walked down to Ho Chi Minβs mausoleum. There happened to have a load of what appeared to be many Vietnamese Veterans from the war in the in the line so the queue was pretty long. There seemed to be more security round the body then probably the current president probably gets. Eventually we got to the body β remarkably well preserved-all that formaldehyde makes him look like he's sleeping and I kept felling that he would open his eyes at any moment. Any how went onto see his house and the pretty gardens surrounding it, and then a quick wizz though the museum and with all this information it seemed like he was a jolly decent chap, sort of. After walking back to the hotel a few of us a found this very Vietnamese restaurant that was pretty awful, incredibly loud took ages to get served β I ordered Crap soup i assumed it was Crab but no it was actually a Crap soup it was like they had dredged the sea bed and I had a bowl of green seaweed with some bits of fish β left rather hungry.
