There's also a seriously great guy that comes to perform for the beer boozers. We decided on our last night to join in. I KNOW there are dozens of videos out there somewhere... See below for an example.
Hỏa Lò Prison
This prison was first used by the French to imprison the Vietnamese and then by the Vietnamese to hold prisoners of war during Vietnam's war with America.
What makes this so interesting is the way the information has been presented. When talking about the french's use of the prison (to imprison the Vietnamese), gaunt models of starving men in shackles are placed in original cells and used to shock the viewer. Items are almost always labelled using propagandistic terms like the 'loyal patriotic soldier'.
Ngoc Son Temple
When we approached the front, you could see the groups of people who had bought huge oval flower arrangements. The officers would march in time and carry the flowers to the entrance of the building. It was only at this point that I looked around and really took in the smart clothing, sober faces, and calm mood.
