The American War Crimes Museum 

South Vietnam President’s Helicopter. The red circles on the pavement mark where Viet Cong rockets landed.

The former South Vietnam Presidential Palace. Renamed Reunification Palace after Viet Cong tanks rolled over the gates and took it, and South Vietnam, under their control. Now a museum, the more or less intact interior is a time warp from that era.

One of the Viet Cong tanks that rolled over the gates to the South Vietnam Presidential Palace and captured the capital of the former South Vietnam.

Cho Lon Market…built in 1926 by the Chinese-Vietnamese living in this area of Saigon. Inside the Market is a busy hub of Vietnamese agricultural products.

Retired and living with my partner, dog and a cat colony on the slope of Mauna Loa. Would rather be living in Palm Springs, California and hope to return there some day. Meanwhile enjoy swimming, walking/hiking and bicycling, trying to maintain my home and property despite really wanting to burn it to the ground. And a little photography. Interested in LGBTQI, environmental and social justice issues.
