You'll see these little ladies in life size all over Vietnam selling various things from their baskets.
Take a peak inside:
This was the best Vietnamese food that we had on the entire trip
After lunch we headed to the Cu Chi tunnels. I was really looking forward to this part of the trip and it was on my list of things to do. I'm glad I went -- a great learning experience.
Here's a model view of the tunnels -- a system of intricate underground workings that were used to shelter and enable the troops in the Vietnam war to make surprise attacks against the Americans before disappearing back through camouflaged trap doors.
The trap doors that happen to be big enough for only the Vietnamese. Not too sure if American solders would fit through them.
See how small you have to be to fit?
But Sung Hyun could do it.......
A trap door with bamboo sticks. Very simple, yet useful!!!
These tunnels were used in the resistance against the US by the Cu Chi people. We made it 75m in the reconstructed tunnels made 25cm larger for fat Western tourists.
They were so small...........
I just barely fit ;)
And then when we got back to our hotel we enjoyed a nice cold Vietnamese beer.......what a great day from start to finish!!!!
