first couple of days in ho chi minh

As we write this masterpiece we're taking in some beautiful culture..... aka chelsea vs. fulham.
We've been in saigon for two full days now and have done some hardcore sight-seeing around the city. On the first day we went to reunification palace which was cool, the best bit being the not at all one-sided video summary of the war. Coops is now a raging commie and keeps refering to me and nick as "capitalist pigs".
It's an amazing city, high-rise fancy offices and hotels on one street and then hap-hazzard busy shops and stalls crammed into the next.
We're leaving for some beach fun in nha trang tomorrow on a sleeper bus but before we do a visit to the cu-chi tunnels is needed, should be interesting to see how the viet-cong lived underground for weeks at a time. (if we can fit in).
Will be in touch again soon.
