Ho Chi Minh City and the Cu Chi tunnels 
This is the reunification palace in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon).  Our tour guide stressed that the south was "liberated" from the colonialist government instituted by the United States.

This is one of the landmarks of Ho Chi Minh, the Notre Dame cathedral.  It was modeled after the one in Paris.

This was on display outside of the War Remnants Museum, formerly called the Chinese and American War Crimes Museum.  It is a tough museum to stomach.  I didn't take any pictures inside.

Jeff and I decided to treat ourselves to a fancy restaurant on Saturday night.  It is a local favorite, no other westerners in sight.  The only item on the menu?  Dog.

They were quite friendly.  They camped out by our table and demonstrated how each entree should be eaten.

The text on the Coke ad is the local way of saying "Cheers".  Just another market for Coke to saturate.
