Flag of Vietnam  ,
Thursday, June 21, 2012

Today we got up pretty early, grabbed some breakfast and headed to Hoa Lo Prision. It was really interesting and walking through parts of it was quite scarey! The American Pilots that were captured during the war sarcastically called the prision "The Hanoi Hilton" hense the title!

As we walked outside the prision I noticed that Sam was wearing a T-Shirt that has "The American Dream" printed on it along with the American flag (funny but very inappropriate).

We killed some time by walking around the streets and stopping off for a couple of cold drinks; today is so sticky hot. After a couple of hours we went to the Army Museum which wasn't too far away. It was pretty cool with planes, tanks and grenades all outside in the courtyard.

We've booked a boat trip around Ha Long Bay for Saturday and Sunday - looking forward to that!!

Love from
Alex & Sam
