I did notice at the airport a family taking their kids out for a New Year treat, to a KFC, it beggars belief such wonderful local food and they go all the way to the airport to feed their kids muck.
Breakfast is served on the 9th floor in a very spacious restaurant, I picked a window seat and selected from the buffet.
Today I had booked a day out to the Vietcong Tunnels very near to HCMC (it was from here that they there surprise attack at TET all those years ago). It was all very interesting and very cleverly constructed, with escape routes all along the way, it was built on a spiders web principle each village connected to the next by three levels of tunnels and at various locations they would enter into the Saigon River. They Americans wondered why when they tried to flood them it never worked, easy,The Vietcong had constructed them in such away and the water just flowed into the Saigon River. The tunnels were so small that it was impossible for GIs to enter.
|A Westernised Tunnel, still quite cloisterphobic|
|Unexploded ammunition, these the Vietcong turned into ammunition of their own in the main anti tank mines|
A wonderful starter I think, don’t you Kikoklu? Martin it is your job to get some fertilised duck eggs (at least 15 days, but no older than 20, as the feathers get a bit indigestible after that).
