Vietnam February, 1998
Ho Chi Minh Tomb

I didn't go in the tomb, but helped our guide hold everyone's cameras. He wanted to know why I didn't go in. Here is what I told him, the tourists cut in front of people who are on a pilgrimage. Ho Chi Minh requested cremation. It means nothing to me to view his body.

I didn't go through Lenin's Tomb either.

This is supposedly Ho Chi Minh's favorite house. It is stunning, very reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is in a beautiful park setting. You can walk around it and look in.
