VIETNAM | Thursday, 24 Mar 2011 | Views [425]

Wednesday, I took a tour to the Cao Dai Temple and the Cu Chi tunnels.   It was quite a contrast to go to the temple in the morning and then the tunnels in the afternoon, but they do that due to proximity of each other.   The Cao Dai temple ... Read more >
