... stopped at the Reunification Palace that day (those pictures were in my last blog). This basically served as the central war headquarters.
They brought us to the Saigon post office, and to a beautiful church, the Saigon Notre Dame, both built in the late 1800's, and both beautiful examples of the influence of French architecture at that time .
