Back in Saigon. We went to the Cu Chi tunnels, a fascinating underground network of tunnels that were used to hide from the Americans during the war. Ok that is a very dumbed down version of quite a lot of history but..you get the picture.
The tunnels themself are very, very small, although I did manage to crouch down fully into them. So many traps were designed as well, for such specific mutilations, eg one was designed in such a way that when soldiers stood on it, metal spikes would, er castrate them. It's scary to think that humans can do this to their own kind, but that's war I suupose.
