So it’s from working with orphanages to teaching English to helping with the homeless like feeding them, and stuff like that. So you’ll be checking out all these different projects over the next few days oops quickly got to catch up with our volunteer group. So before you actually do any volunteering you can do an optional cultural week which we highly suggest you do, and we come to the kuchi tunnels to learn a bit about the history of the Vietnam War go inside the tunnels hopefully could be a good start to the morning all right we come to our first stop on this experience, and let me know if you can find where the hidden trap door is can you guess that would you guess that it’s here look how small this is arms right up Steve this is a trap, and these are bamboo shirts that have been made into points, and look at this. So the Americans would run, and then they would fall in look like that the tactics of the Vietnamese, and the Viet Cong use against the Americans are frightening oh my god I’ve never even seen again haven’t learned about this either you did from post games right he’s like telling me all these things like I guessed it of like Steven did you get this all from post games you like yes crazy one where that like have a mouth, and then that shoot, and then look how small these holes are that they would go through, and then there’s the secret exit just over there they were telling us they would build their tunnels like zigzag. So then if an enemy tried to get in. But couldn’t, and they started to shoot it would hit the wall like it wasn’t a direct tunnel of the zigzag.
So clever, and they’re also telling us how they hid the soil they would like turd into the river, and also there’s like big craters where the Americans bond they’ll fill up the craters with soil these tunnels that we are here what is going to give this what important to this, I’m go gasp up in the middle fold into a trap of time I will get stuck in my toaster in the middle of it oh my goodness oh my god this is actually start canary, I’m feeling like really weird currently walking through the Vietnam War tunnels like bending over to get through here that’s Jess up ahead another one of the tunnel really hot down here you’re claustrophobic would not suggest I think we have certainly which from the shore to the one oh yeah oh my god that was so scary oh yes.
