Cu Chi - Viet Cong Tunnels

A hidden entrance. There were approximately 250km of tunnels. I wriggled through 15 metres of them.

Moi, a south Vietnamese lady on the trip, demonstrating the entrance. Adrian, a more substantial NZer on the trip could get in but needed help to get out.

Typical tunnel dwellers fare - boiled tapioca, peanut/sugar/salt mix and green tea.


  1. This is a really fascinating journal, I'm quite converted to the idea of a trip blog!

    (I think)
    the patch worn by the US soldiers who would crawl into these tunnels and check them for enemy or signs of enemy.

    Not worth a rat's ass.
    (they didn't like the job, but did it as duty)
