Wanderings, travel, photographs and skiing…

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Hanoi, Vietnam

By on September 7, 2015 in Vietnam

On my way back from the Botanic Gardens I decided to visit the Lăng Chủ Tịch Hồ Chí Minh (Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum), Quảng Trường Ba Đình, Quận Ba Đình, Thành Phố Hà Nội.  Certainly an interesting place.

The long wide boulevard reminded me so much of those propaganda shots of the 1970s.

The boulevard seemed to go on and on….

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum was impressive. Although again it felt like something from another era.

I managed to get shouted at taking the shot below because as I was staring down the viewfinder I managed to walk over a line that visitors are not allowed to cross.  Moral of this story is…  Don’t stare down your viewfinder when moving around as you never know where you are going to step!

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is certainly an impressive place. But do watch where you step!
