Day 5 - reflections(varsha)

Today was an interesting day for me. We went to the Cu Chi Tunnels and I learnt a lot about the history of the vietnam war. It was a scary experience for me when entering the tunnels as i don’t like dark places and small places. I learnt that the tunnels were built for easy navigation when the American soldiers are attacking the vietnam people. There were also many booby traps such as sharp sticks. The vietnam soldiers wanted the american soldiers to suffer first rather than die at first. I saw that the vietnam people had to suffer and live in hunger and poverty during the time of the war. Then we went to the Cu Chi wildlife reserve centre. We saw a lot of animals that were endangered. Some of the animals were kept in cages. Illegally hunting and killing the animals had made the animals to be kept enclosed in cages instead of letting them free. I felt really sad for the animals

How has your first impression of HCMC City changed?
HCMC has a lot of history preserved into the various tourist places. At first i thought is a third world country but then it has a lot of beautiful places to visit. It has also a lot of traffic especially motorcycles. It is also quite clean
