ho chi minh city

First port Phu My in Vietnam. Took the bus tour to Ho Chi. Minh City.

First stop was the museum

Them mummifies body of a 60 year old aristocratic Vietnamese women discovered in
Ho Chi Minh City.
She was buried in a full shroud with grave goods all of which were soaked in a red solution

Water puppets at the Museum

Next stop on our tour was the Minh Phuong Laquer Factory

Duck eggs that have hatched are used for the shell  inlay as they are considered stronger.

These gentlemen are sanding back the lacquer work ready for finishing.

Next stop lunch at the Grand Hotel.
food was excellent and so was the floor show

More images from Ho Chi Minh City

Just had to put this one in for any electricians out there
