Today we pay a vist to Uncle Ho, the founding father of unified Vietnam, who eveyone worships, a true legend in Vietnamese history.
Uncle Ho has been dead for 43 years however he is still looking good, hair & skin intact. His body has been embalmed and rests in the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Uncle Ho is everywhere on bank notes and walls of shops & houses.
Afterwards we wander around the Old Quarter, try Vietnamese coffee (delicious) & attend a performance of Vietnam's famous water puppet show.
Tonight is our final day where we say goodbye to Yoko, Phil, Fab, Mika, Flo & Rob and welcome 4 new people to the group, Tracey, Gerry, Glen & Tim.
