Ho Chi Minh is still very much a cult figure in Vietnam. It's hard to believe that he died as long ago as 1969. His picture is in public buildings everywhere as is the Vietnamese flag and the flag of the Communist party which, with its hammer and sickle, bears an uncanny resemblance to the old flag of the Soviet Union.
I was told that during Tet it was obligatory for every building, including family homes, to hang out a flag.
