We started the day with a vegetarian (Buddhist) cooking class, making steamed rice cakes, corn spring roles and a veggie hot pot - surprisingly, all of them turned out to be really good! After making a meal of the food we had cooked, we visited two mausoleums. The first one was of the King Tu Doc (who lost the country to the French), and the second one was for King Khai Dinh, both with unique architectural styles.

The day ended with us taking a flight to Saigon or Ho Chi Mihn city, our last stop in Vietnam...

How do you get all the pics?
Are you going up to random people, asking them to take your picture, and then running off to get into the (hilarious) poses? Or are you guys traveling in a broader group?
