Vietnam: 11~Road to Cu Chi

It was going to be a long and full day, starting in south Vietnam and finishing in central Vietnam. We checked out of the hotel and like the eager travellers we were, piled back into our bus.

Before we ventured north we had one final big activity to do. Cu Chi was our destination, an area famous for tunnels used by the Viet Cong in the war. It wasn’t that far out of Saigon but as it takes an age to get anywhere it would take up much of the day.

Some sights from the bus…

Happy friends

Rush hour, which I think lasts all day, as others take a quick pit stop

Bored? Grumpy? Both?

Breakfast perhaps

A Chinese flavoured building (and the usual mass of black wires)

Vietnam's electricity infrastructure and a reminder of my job. Still that was a fair few days away yet

Not far from the tunnels

I’ll cover the Cu Chi stop in a separate post. On the way back to the city we stopped for lunch and group photos. Not much time to dilly dally though, we had a flight to catch.

Team photo. Dan and Mark had organised Vietnamese hats for all of us.

Ahh, those wires

Water, lots of water
