Day Tour in Hanoi, Vietnam (Sep 2010) - Part 3

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum
The house built for Ho Chi Minh which he declined to stay in
He stayed in another small building and this hut beside the mansion instead
Soldiers practising behind the Mausoleum
Temple of Literature where Confucious is worshipped
Vietnamese schoolgirls

Vietnamese students come to this temple to pray for wisdom in the hope of getting good grades



A gift from Emperor Kang Xi
Scholars had their names carved in stone... kinda like our Dean's List
The huge drum... bigger than the Beijing Olympics drums
Water puppets
These puppets are half-submerged in water and controlled using bamboo from underneath. I found it rather interesting but Chris slept through the entire performance -.-
St. Joseph's Cathedral
