Ho Chi Minh city, aka Saigon: we arrived at the unthinkable hour of 4.30am yesterday. Can't say it was on my list of 'Must Sees' but made a visit to the hospital to confirm that yes, I had indeed eroded through my oesphagus and wouldn't be able to eat. TAKE YOUR PILLS WITH WATER CHILDREN, it hurts otherwise.
Found a shop selling western goodies (hurrah! Coco pops!) and went to the Army Museum which was amazing. It was extremely sobering, especially with the shocking photography of victims of Agent Orange. Saw the famous photo of Kim Phuc running from the G.Is having been burned by napalm. Stayed out late for drinks with Bunny and a persistent 9 year old beggar child whose classic words were "come on baby, show me the money"
