6 Mar: Afternoon in HCMC

The French colonial authorities built some wonderful Beaux Arts buildings in Saigon. The General Post Office (above) was designed by Gustav Eiffel. Yes, that Eiffel. It was a beautiful, graceful, quiet place of refuge from the mid-afternoon heat and bedlam. The National Theater (no longer the Opera House) (below) was equally graceful.

Our hotel was truly centrally located. I really appreciated that fact in the heat and humidity.
