back in the big city

The city is really big and big busy. We have had fun in a Big park each morning playing with some local kids.

We went to the Reunification Palace. The place where the American war between the North and South ended. There were lots of big rooms and then in the basement were all the control rooms underground. We saw saw some army tanks, a jet plane and an helicopter.

We went in the Bitexco Tower 262 metres and 68 floors tall. We had a great view of the city. We saw the Saigon River and the tunnel that goes underneath it and the palace.

We had a morning at the waterpark but it was really crowded and noisy with all the kids on school holidays. Toby and I found it really boring because we were not tall enough to go on the big slides.

At the history museum we saw a mummy she was 200 years old (even older than Ange in the office) She looked really disgusting. She had her shoes on and she still had hair.

Bella and I had a haircut which was funny. Bella's cost $1 and mine was $5. The man cutting my hair had really funny glasses he looked like the Vietnamese Where's Wally.

Our favorite HCM restaurant was the Barbeque House where you got to cook you food on a Barbeque in the table in front of you
