29 March.

Took part of an organized city tour of Hanoi. It is amazing that a city of Hanoi’s size have so little and few things to see and do. The tour was so so interesting. I skipped the visit to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, because there was a one kilometer long queue. That’s why I also missed some other attractions close to the mausoleum. After the tour finished I continued exploring Hanoi by myself. I took a taxi to the Hoa Lo Prison Museum or the “Hanoi Hilton” as the Americans renamed the prison during the war.
