Laura, Barry and Ho Chi Minh

Why is this woman hidden underground, and why is Barry tunnelling away? Well, because of the Vietnam war.These are the Cu chi tunnels, used as one means for the Viet Cong to stymie the Americans. Also used were booby traps show below. The Americans fought back with their own weapons, as detailed at the museum formerly named the American War Crimes museum. Fair enough.To move on to brighter topics, here are some balloons.And a picture of me and Jack. Fruit.As you can see, I fit right in in Ho Chi Minh. I even tried the local convenience dogs, but the cat food smell stopped me.HCM is a pretty city
filled with Vietnam's main mode of transportation, the overloaded scooter:More, including mad chaos videos.
