Then was lunch and we got our first taste of a full-on Vietnamese meal. Starting with a hearty vegetarian Pho (noodles) and fried spring rolls through to stir fry and rice. We were packed solid and all vegetarian and gluten free. Luckily for me they use rice paper for the spring rolls and, especially in the south, most soy sauces do not include wheat. Then back in the van for the several hours to the Cu Chi Tunnels.

Back at Ho Chi Minh City we found a lovely Indian restaurant for dinner as we prepared to jump on a bus again to continue our discovery of Vietnam. No time to kick back and relax just yet...
