In the morning I walked over to Ben Thanh Market near the middle of Saigon. If you are looking to buy some organ meat or plastic baggies filled with pig’s blood, this is definitely the place for you!
Cody and Tyler were checking out the tea at the market.
The whole group went to the War Remnants Museum. The courtyard holds several war-era planes, tanks, howitzers, and other military equipment.
Next we visited Reunification Palace, formerly known as Independence Palace and, before that, Norodom Palace.
All in all, I think the students had a good day but they were pretty tired by dinner. I am too–it’s 9:30 pm local time and I can barely keep my eyes open. Tomorrow morning we take a trip to Ben Tre and Can Tho in the Mekong Delta. Should be fun!
