Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon

Ho Chi Minh was where we learnt all about the Vietnam war.  We spent a day at the war museum looking at grisly pictures and trying to understand why the war even happened.  Another day was spent at the Chu-Chi tunnels.  It was fascinating to learn the tenacity of the Viet Cong in protecting their beliefs and land from their invaders who obviously had much superior weapons and supplies.  Crawling along the tunnels Jordan and I felt the squeeze and claustrophobia that many of the Viet Cong must have felt and we only went through the smaller tunnels.
