PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?
Ethnic Museum

HA NOI DAY 10

Ethnic Museum
TODAY WE GO ALL ETHNIC
 
The Radical 
14th Nov 2018
 
AND WE WERE THE  MINORITY
No 14 HanoiBus – Fucking Useless for Tourists again
 
Its high time the Staff had some inservice training on how to handle tourists.
 
We had written down the bus stop, showed the Conductress 
 
the place we wanted to go to the Ethnology Museum and guess what ?
 
She took us two stops past the get off point. Thats two kilometres.
 
Even getting off at the right stop we had a 600 metre walk in the wild
 
with the traffic. Plus Dogs tied up on the pavement ? being fattened up ?
 
So 2 6 kilometres later we arrived at the Museum 
 
Where bus loads of tourists were alighting with their paid guides.
 
Oh, I do hope they paid well for that.

 
Almost certainly in excess of 200,000 Dong each.
 

We paid 14000 Dong to arrive thats less than 50p for two and think of the exercise. 
 
Once inside at 40,000 Dong each we were met

 
with all 54 ethnic tribes colourful life style. 

 
Nice gloss photos missing the real struggle

 
for survival these tribes faced even without the 
 

Frogs & Yanks burning, looting, raping and killing.
 
Tribal Art,Folk Law and Handcrafts but one whole room devoted to death
 
 and its ritual sacrifices.

 
THere were ramps beside the stairs the first that we have seen at any of the mueums. 

 
However there are 15 large steps to negotiate to get into the building and no lift to the second floor exhibits.

 
Only a spiral staircase.

 
Please make a small sacrifice Vietnam for the disabled and think of the

 
difference it would make.
 

Incidently fat frogs are a delicacy here.


I saw a woman smashing them live against the concrete step

 one at as time until her basket was full od dead ones
 
And watch out for dog stew. 
 
A bowl of appetising noodles may be disguising the pet poodle.
 
Back up the road with weary legs
 
To the No 14 bus for the return journey.
 
We had just missed one but the wait was worth it 
 
We were first in the queue. 
 
(AND TO LISTEN TO THE ORCHESTRA OF HORN HOOTING

 
MOSTLY FOR ROAD RAGE INCIDENTS)

 
OH NO. When the bus came this middle aged menopausal pushed past the two of us to get on first and a seat. 
 
What she had not bargained for was a piece of my mind.
 
Seems the Vienamese want to ethnically cleanse all except their own and I say

 
that because taking ones life in ones hands when crossing the road is a lottery.
 

Especially if the road is wide, the Little Green Man shows green

 
AND you are on a crossing 
 

That is real ethnic cleansing time. 
 
Now I never argue with a bus – its bigger than me – but a moped maniac I can handle.
 
So I wave my bag in his face when he comes too close hoping for the strawberry jam scene 
 
WOT ME SIR ? I NEVER TOUCHED HIM – HE SWERVED AS HE TRIED TO RUN ME OVER. 
 
I WAS IN MY RIGHTS PEDESTRIANS WERE HERE FIRST, ANIMALS NEXT 
THEN MOTORISED TRAFFIC LAST.
QED …..
 
The rest of the day was for resting
 
Good Night.
