Podcast #034 – Celebrating The Year of the Rooster in Vietnam

In this episode, you can join my daughter and me in the southern part of Vietnam. First in the charming little town of H?i An. After a small detour and a trip on scooters, we arrive on the Chinese New Years Eve – just as they are entering The Year of the Rooster. Everyone in our host family are dressed up and in the middle of the dinner.
Also, you can join us on a bike ride to the beach where we get scammed again and on a trip to Marble Mountains close to Danang.
In Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) we visit The War Remnant Museum. A place that focusses on the horrors the Americans did during The Vietnam War.
We also go to the famous Cu Chi tunnels that the Vietnamese communists built during the war in a forest just north of the city. We learned about the traps, saw a place where visitors could shoot machineguns and got to crawl around in the narrow tunnels,
