Three down, one to go...

Today I visited the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, bringing my grand total of embalmed Communist viewings to three (Ho, Mao, Kim Il-sung). Now all I need is Lenin! It's a bit of a shame Kim Jong-il died, mostly because his son is a huge jerk, but also because I feel like that's one more pickle that requires my attention, but I can't very well justify a trip back to North Korea for one dead dude. Actually, it would be hard to justify any trip there at the moment.

I may write more about today later (I also paid a visit to the Hanoi Hilton and saw what is supposedly my man John McCain's flight suit), but I have a night bus headed north to Sapa that leaves in half an hour. Laterz!
