6 September 2001

Woke up far too early, had breakfast at another pho stall, which wasn't as good then had to go into Frontier for a final meeting. Lunch at the bun cha near Frontier House but this time with Myron and Troy so Myron was able to order us spring rolls and green tea.

Got a xe om back, ridiculously dangerous weaving through the traffic on the back of a motorbike without a helmet but a lot of fun.

Took a xe om tour out past west lake to visit the army museum. Heavy on the propaganda with signs like "Total Victory Over Imperialism" but fascinating, I was especially interested to learn that volunteers from other communist countries fought with the Viet Cong.

In the evening we had a party on the roof of Frontier House with two kegs of beer and fish from Mr Tiens private lake. Went on to Relax Bar and then to Apocalypse Now where the girls were horrified and I made the mistake of ordering a Tiger beer, which was not good.
