DGJ_1634 - Rest in.......

PLEASE, no multi invitations (none is better) in your comments. Thanks.

 

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum - Despite Ho Chi Minh's request to be cremated, he was embalmed and put on display. A visit to the mausoleum is a somber experience in the spiritual center of Vietnamese independence. He looked pasty to me, but the quiet line that forms to view his body is a vision of respect and may even cry. The line is very long and I really did not care if I went in or not but the rest of the people talked me into it. Hanoi, Vietnam

 

He had just returned from Russia after being touched up.
