Today was great! First we went to the Ben thanh market to get some food and have a look around. Everyone loved to touch Ted and Zara but all I got was a grin and some glares. The market had lots of skinny isles filled with tiny shops. They sold wood carvings, clothes, hats, sunnies, phone cases and some really strange food. One shop had a scorpion and a snake in a jar. It was so hot that Ted and Zara had to buy a fan but later Ted left his behind in a Taxi! After the market we went to the war museum.  There was a lot of different machinery used by the Americans in the Vietnam war.  It was really sad to see what had happened to the kids and families during the attacks and from the gases used during the war. To finish the day off we searched the streets for some place to have dinner. Round about 10 minutes later we arrived at a restaurant were you grill your own food on the table that Blake’s mum had suggested. The food there was so GOOD. I had beef pho with a bit of chilli and a banana smoothie. At the hotel we watched some TV and then went to bed.
