Today was another busy day.  We had a look around Saigon. We went to the Opera House, the Post Office, Notre Dam, the markets and a lacquer factory for a quick look, but the main part of the morning was spent at the now Reunification Palace which was the headquarters of the South Vietnam Government during the Vietnam war. After lunch a few of the ladies and a couple of brave men went for a massage. Very relaxing - an hour for the princely sum of US $10!!  We then headed off for 5 o'clock follies at the Rex and tea at a barbecue restaurant, where we cooked our own meal on mini bbq's in the middle of the table. Fell into bed again after updating the diary :)
