Vietnam Holiday – Day Four – Part One


VC Toy Escaping Down a Tunnel

Today we visited the Cu Chi tunnel complex and the historic war relics. The tunnels of Cu Chi are an immense network of connecting underground tunnels located in the Cu Chi district of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and are part of a much larger network of tunnels that underlie much of the country.The Cu Chi area is located about 40 km from Ho chi Minh City

The embedded video was published on Dec 19, 2013 taken by Eugene Taylor and Abraham Krikorian . These tunnels are approximately 200 kilometers long and were hand dug by the Viet Minh and later by the Viet Cong using crude tools. The incredible ingenuity and determination on the part of the Vietnamese in fighting for independence and unification is reflected throughout the tunnel complex. The video is so comprehensive that there will br no more text, only photos.

A grim reminder of the horrors of the Vietnam war.
