|Our current private vacation home in Rawai, Phuket, Thailand.|
|We've yet to use the pool with rain these past few days but will soon. Interior photos will follow over the next few days.|
|We'd love to be able to dine outdoors but the mozzies are fierce at dusk.|
|Examples of clothing worn by the Viet Cong.|
|Map of the vast coverage of the Cu Chi Tunnel. In the basket in front of the map is a hand tool used to dig the miles of tunnels.|
|Booby trap. Scary.|
|Tom tasted a ration used by the Viet Cong made of coconut, seeds and sugar, compressed into a crispy stick. He said it was surprisingly palatable.|
|The vent for the underground kitchen within the tunnel emitting smoke a distance from the location of the kitchen to prevent enemy attack.|
|This was actually a live person in a slightly below ground bunker making uniforms and other gear used in the tourist center which also served as an example of how clothing and gear was made during the war.|
|At first glance we wondered why these tired were cut into piece. Kong explained how the old tires were used to make sandals for the Viet Cong. See photo below.|
|These are the sandals that were made from old tires worn by the Viet Cong.|
With hundreds of photos we've yet to share from Vietnam, our photos and stories continue. I deliberated over posting three days of photos from Cu Chi Tunnel but based on the huge number of hits we've had, one more day of the remaining photos may be of interest to some readers.
Tomorrow, we'll continue with all new Vietnam photos, many locations we visited but have yet to describe. We look forward to seeing you visit us here again.
Have a healthful and meaningful day!

|The Australian Brushturkey, also called the Scrub Turkey or Bush Turkey freely roamed the Cairns Botanical Garden which we visited one year ago today. These turkeys are not closely related to American turkeys. Click here for more details. For more of our photos from the botanical garden tour, please click here.|
