I saw Ho Chi Mihn this morning. To get into the mausoleum, we had to abandon our phones and turn off our cell phones. Then we all had to line up 2×2 to walk past the body. Very regimented. No hats, hands at sides. Not much talking in the line-up, but no talking in the mausoleum. I don’t know if this is the rule, or if that’s just what peole do.

The we say Ho Chi Mihn’s various houses. The one he was supposed to live in was very big and grand (and really yellow). The one he chose to lice in instead was modest. The one he had built for himself was super-modest. There are massive queues of people we stood in to walk past the rooms of the last two.
