Hello, apologies for my spelling I am going to put it down to fast typing and next time maybe il get louise to give it the once over before I post it lol
On our last day in HCMC we decided to go visit the cu chi tunnels I didn't have a clue what they were but it was great day! I can now tell you that the tunnels were dug by the Cu chi civilians who called themselves the cu chi gorrilas during the Vietnam war against USA and they were dug by hand and took years and years to dig, and they span over 30km! The americans used b52's to chemically bomb the cu chi gorrilas and it did not affect them so much but the chemicals made their next generation handicapped and they worked in the factory were their mums and dads did and they stuff they were making was amazing they had a shop aswell and all sales went towards helping them but we didn't buy anything it was to expensive lol
We got to walk down them or crawl really cause they were made so small so americans can't get in! Louise didn't make it in cause it was too clostrophobic! They made air holes up to the surface but made fake termite holes to hide them in and use to sprinkle chillies and pepper on the holes to block the smell against sniffer dogs!
We got to see all the traps they used, anyway not to bore you (maybe to late) but were in Nha trang now which is on the coast we bought a bus ticket to take us from HCMC to Hanoi for $33 with any stop off on the way :) off for breakfast now
Also that day louise had her backpack with her with the combination lock on and when she took it off it must have reset as a different number so we couldn't get in and all our bags and cards and money were in there so It was my job that night to sit and go through the combinations, to be honest the odds were against me but I pulled through and just randomly guessed it haha took me a few hours!
Adam and louise xxx
