It was with mixed feelings I visited the great uncle Ho.
He didn't mean anything to me in person but on the other hand it felt wrong not to go.
Now i'm happy to have been there.

The lines was short and it was more or less "easy" to figure out what to to next.
After a hazel with bags and cameras, passing by soldiers we where lined up two and two to walk through the mausoleum. If you can, walk on the left side since it is easier to see from there.

Make sure you wear clothes that cover your knees.
A very reverend resting place for uncle Ho, supported by
commercial tourist shops? Is nothing sacred?

Very grand. The people of this country hold this man in very high regard. Go early as it gets very busy.

Seeing ole Ho there like an ashen corpse. Apparently, the Vietnamese are experts at embalming and were called in to embalm Mao as well. Still its a little strange to see Ho there from 40 years ago. But obviously I was curious, since I saw Mao as well!
