    Thank you for visiting my new Oswiecim page and the Delphi souvenirs. Quite different stories! Chu Chi is not for visitors suffering of claustrophobia!

    mit etwas cleverness und Ausdauer kann man jede militärische Supermacht mit minimalen Mitteln bezwingen, das finde ich sehr beruhigend !

    das ist echt interessant, daß die Vietnamesen jetzt noch mit dem Vietnamkrieg ganz gut Geld verdienen !

    Interesting historical destination, I am sure I could never fit in one of those tunnels.

    Cu Chi was certainly an interesting and amazing place to visit, you have put so much info on your tips, much more than I remember from our half day visit.

    Hi Michael, Great page on a place I plan to visit in October. Like your Mandioc tip. I ate it as part of my staple diet in Brazil, where it is also very popular :) Thanks for sharing. Brian

    Excellent page about such a distant for me place. Germans are also welcomed in Russia in spite of WWII.... I doubt that the Vietnamese soldiers were also well-paid by Russia or China (but weapon was from there no doubt!)

    I was stationed not far from Cu Chi in 1964/65, in the next province, but we didn't even know about the tunnels at that time. Thirty years later I went back with my older son and I actually overcame my claustrophobia long enough to crawl through a tunnel.
