Vietnam 2: A Few Saigon Day Scenes

Me leaving the hotel the first morning
by Pa Rock

Here are a few scenes from our first morning in Saigon.  As you can see, it is a large, modern city.  Many of the houses and apartment buildings are very narrow - sort of like the famous "shotgun houses" of New Orleans.

Our first day was extremely busy.  We visited the Viet Cong tunnel complexes at Cu Chi, the Chinese Market, the Presidential Palace, the Saigon Post Office, and Notre Dame Cathedral.  Pictures of those places will follow on later posts.
