Ho Chi Minh

This morning we were prepared to visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.  To view his enbalmed body visitors must leave all bags outside, speak in hushed tones and keep hands out of pockets.  Unfortunately, when our guide arrived, he informed us that although this visit was on our itinerary, the mausoleum is closed on Mondays.  We had to settle for a walk around the complex and a look at where he lived when he was alive.  We tasted the delicious "milk fruit"  and hung out with this year's graduating class who lined up to take pics with Raf.  On to lunch for a delicious fish fry specialty at Cha Ca La Vong.
