Getting All Dolled Up At The Củ Chi Tunnels Near Saigon

The stewards of the Củ Chi tunnels site have kicked the experience into quasi-creepy overdrive with the addition of many life-sized figures to help illustrate what it was (or wasn't) like to be in the area during the Vietnam War.

The overall collection of mannequins is impressive and the care to make each figure unique starts to create separate personalities worth photographing. History almost comes alive.

Making camp.

Young women warriors, joining the fight.

Serious note-taking.

The mannequins do a bit of instructing. Re-purposing an unexploded American bomb into North Vietnamese weapons. Another young soldier.
