Vietnamese Women's Museum

Outside the museum is one of those cutouts that we had to step behind and be photographed. Why wouldn't you?

We learned a lot about the role women in Vietnamese society. One exhibit was dedicated to women's roles during the American war. Many women fought for their country and their resumes sounded very impressive. No wimpy girls here. 
The video which gave voice to a dozen street vending women was a powerful testimony to the determination of women today. 

After all that learning, we took a break at a coffee shop to enjoy a few minutes off our feet and refresh ourselves for the walk back to our hotel.
