The Army museum in Hanoi is an odd place, it’s hard to describe. The imposing American fighter jet laden with bombs dominating the courtyard outside, flanked by a bullet holed US tank and beside sit massive stacks of war debris such as parts of shot down planes, ammunition, shells, you name it – it’s all here. A stark reminder of the unfortunate reason why everyone thinks of Vietnam as a war, rather than a vibrant, cultural and amazing country. Elsewhere in the city there are still the remnants of a US bomber, nose down in the middle of a small lake, parts still visible above the water line. Just left, abandoned and untouched, as another reminder of what happened here.
