We also saw the empty Presidential Palace within the same complex, it is only used for visiting dignitaries now. A big impressive building.
There were lovely gardens all around it and a bride was having her photos taken there.
We were taken past a big lake and also past many monuments, I was intrigued by the power lines all bunched up, a real dangerous mess.
The rickshaws took all 46 of us in style to a special Water Puppet show. Something I had never seen or heard of, the puppeteers all work from behind a curtain with their puppets on long poles, with these they told many stories while a noisy drummer and other musicians and a screaming type singer took the tale .... Vietnamese of cause so it was kind of lost on us, even though we are all trying to learn a few words of the language so as to talk a bit with locals.
After the puppet show it was back the Hotel to dress for dinner, We all went out to a big flash restaurant for a wonderful meal again with Dorothy and Winnifred, pictured is one of the lovely 5 courses, Fish wrapped in banana leaves, really lovely.,
after which we all wandered back to Hotel for well deserved snooze.
