Hello friends,

I hope you are well. I am well. Yes, I am supposed to be doing my assignments; however, I have just completed one of my presentations. So, I deserve a break.  And for my break, I decided I would make a blog post!

Let’s get right into it.

So on the 2nd day of my trip, we went to a museum. The first was quite new that was opened to the public. It showed areas of how the parliaments met and underground bunker during the many wars Vietnam has. I was a little lost with all the wars in Vietnam, but it was still pretty interesting.

I didn’t have a picture of the museum, so I screenshotted my video. But that is how the museum looked like. The other two pictures were taken around the museum as the museum surroundings were about 10 acres of land, it was very large! The interior was also really pretty (picture below).

And the view of outside from the museum was also amazing!

I don’t really have much to talk about as I cannot remember what I’ve seen during my time there. I regret this because I won’t be able to document my trips! So I apologise to you as well as a reader. Next time I go on a trip, I’ll be sure to document it better.

Above are some pictures of the rooms displayed. They’re interesting and definitely reflects some Chinese culture in the Vietnamese culture.

This is a picture of my mum with at the theatre room, the doors were padded so it’ll be sound proof. And pictures below are of the kitchen downstairs. I took them cause they looked really interesting, and they don’t really have these old kitchen equipment anymore.

My mum for scale, the woks used were very very large. This was during the war time, and people have to cook it large bulks so that they’re able to feed everyone in the bunker. I remember someone mentioned that they could only cook at a certain time at night as the smoke would go out, and enemies might be able to see. So when it’s night time, they have to cook really quickly and hope that the smoke would be hard to see.

I also had a really good lunch that day! My favourite was the beef stew. I don’t actually have the picture with me right now, but it’s definitely up on my Instagram. So, if you’d like to see more pictures you can click right here!

That is basically it for this blog post! I know there wasn’t much, but I hope you enjoyed the pictures anyway. And, if you haven’t checked out the vlog for my Vietnam trip, you can look at it here.

If you’ve been to Vietnam, have you visited this museum? Do you think it’s interesting? I’d love to know!

Cheers,
Sylvia
