Ho Chi Minh City

this day i decided to go to Ho Chi Minh City.
i will go to mui ne if there is better wind forecasted (at least 60km/h ;-))

so in Ho Chi Minh City aka saigon i got a privat guesthouse for 8$ and i visited in the afternoon the notre dame catedrale and the war remnant museum.
This disturbing display of man's cruelty during the Vietnam (American) War includes halls full of gruesome photographs, a simulated "tiger cage" prison and jars of deformed fetuses blamed on Agent Orange. There is bias as there are no "records" of any unpleasant deeds having been committed by the North Vietnamese Army. Outside, there are helicopters, jets, tanks, and other bits of armament. one amputee (on both side no hand only the upperarm were ok) came to me and i have to give him my hand....he would try to sell his wares.

Hi Bernhard,
damit du deutsch nicht ganz verlernst, schreibe ich mal in deiner Muttersprache :-)
Ist ja wieder mal ein interessanter Trip. Freu mich schon auf ein paar Bilder vielleicht bei einem Spanferkel oder so!? Gestern hatten wir Weihnachtsfeier, war mit dem Auto unterwegs, darum kein Alk. Die anderen haben dafür meine Ration konsumiert! *PROST*
In diesem Sinne noch schöne Reise!
