Here’s a quick look at the Vietcong tunnels outside of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in Vietnam.  They were incredibly advanced and stretched out hundreds of kilometers with multiple underground levels ranging from a few meters up to 15 meters deep.

The only way to enter into the Cu Chi Vietcong tunnels – it was a very tight squeeze and some in the group couldn’t even fit!

There were there levels underground connected by the tunnels. We only saw the first (highest) level where they actually had command centers and sleeping bunkers.

One of the nasty traps the Vietcong set up throughout the jungle. Anyone who was unlucky enough to step on the false floor fell onto the spikes.

  1. Dan So what if you break free and crash? You’re so young. You have plenty of time to make a come-back. Just look how you haedlnd your debt. I heard this quote just yesterday and it may resonate with you: From Neale Donald Walsh: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” May life begin for you when you make the leap. Go for it!
