Well, I think I have finally gotten rid of the head cold. I felt well enough that I spent the best part of yesterday at the Military Museum in Hanoi. Vietnam has a long history of being occupied. First by the Chinese, then the French, the Japanese, and finally USA trying to impose their ideals on another Country.
The Vietnamese have always been a fiesty proud people. It says something profound when 54 ethnic groups live together in great harmony. They will not be put down for long and will always rise above their difficulties to triumph in the end.
