Hồ Chí Minh Mausoleum

HDP  045

Here's another famous building in Hanoi: the Hồ Chí Minh Mausoleum. Hosting the preserved body of the former leader, it is open to the public in the morning so that people can go pay their respects to 'Uncle Ho' - and boy do they go there in big groups in the morning, there's always a line to get in!

THis kind of devotion you just ouldn't get in the west, and I'm glad. Saying that it's afabulous image with such a dramatic sky.

The mausoleum was great! I don't think there's a more orderly queue anywhere in Asia! I LOVED Hanoi and am very jealous that you get to live there. I know my pictures show a real tourist's perspective, but thanks for checking it out.
