National Day in Vietnam

Today is the anniversary of the death of Ho Chi Minh in 1969 and is a public holiday in Vietnam.  imageIt has been proclaimed to be National Day. When I arrived home from work yesterday, every house in our Hem was sporting a Vietnamese flag (click on thumbnail for a larger image), except ours of course. We don’t own a Vietnamese flag and I didn’t think that many people would appreciate the humour in hanging our Aussie flag from the bedroom balcony.
