Briefly famous

Nam took us to a big statue of Ho Chi Minh in Hoa Binh; 30km from Luong Son. It is the biggest statue in the country of Uncle Ho at 38m. Hoa Binh is not known for its tourists so a tall white bald man with a big nose is as much an attraction as Ho Chi Minh. While we were there a family came up to me and each asked to have their photo taken with me. It has happened a few times since being in Vietnam and is quite funny. It is nice to know that someone out there other than Celine is interested in my ugly face.
