Trip to Vietnam

Anh, Wilhelm and I made a trip to Vietnam in the beginning of 2006. We went to Hanoi and Ho-Chi-Minh-City (Saigon). It was really great, here are some pictures to give you an impression.

On the way from the Airport to Hanoi. Looks a little like northern Germany (just imagine that the mountains are the Harz Mountains...)

Typical shape of houses in Hanoi. The houses are narrow, so that everyone can get parcel with direct access to the street.

Historical trap of the Viet Cong for American Soldiers. When you step on the cover, it turns over and you fall into the hole, whose ground is prepared with spears. The cover turns back into its normal position and you disappeared without a trace.

Another trap. If you fall into this lances from four sides will stab you. The lances are moved by your weight.

A more comfortable entry to the tunnel system. But the tunnel is not very comfortable: No lights, a 90°turn every five meters (so you cannot shoot), you have to crouch and it is narrow. Anh was in front of me, but I never saw her, because you don't see anything. It's completely dark. Also it was hot and humid down there. The guide said, we went 30 meters, but it felt like 100.

Wilhelm got himself into a taxi for asian people, now he tries to get out. During the ride, he was not able to look out the window, because the window was below his head.
