Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum<br>Hanoi, Vietnam: Hanoi, Vietnam
: Buildings; City Scenes.
The resting place of Ho Chi Minh. He lies in state here, the centrepiece of a macabre ritual public visitation. The visitors queue up at the Ho Chi Minh museum, some 500 meters from the mausoleum. From there they march single-file down the street and into the twisty, windy, halls of the mausoleum where stone-faced guards protect the sanctity of Uncle Ho. No cameras allowed, thank-you, as such would be undignified behaviour. Ho Chi Minh lies in a glass case, his sallow face, tinted like a wax museum figure by a most unusually coloured illumination. The eight guards in the small antechamber seem not to notice this, nor anything else.
During visiting hours the broad avenue in front of the mausoleum as well as the park from which this photo was shot, are closed to public access unless otherwise escorted by guards.
