Hoa Lo Prison Tour

Hi everyone for those of you who request here is more about Larkyn.
She is such a good baby!!
She loves to talk and smile.
She loves a bath. We bath her in the sink in the bathroom and she smiles at herself in the mirror.
When she wakes up she like to play and talk for a while before she eats.
She can roll over and push up on her tummy to play.
She loves her Pooh Bear that is connected to her pacifier, which she also loves!!
She watches T.V.!!
She is a wiggle worm.!
She is very alert and takes in everything around her.
She makes a little old lady face, that is soooo cute.
We love her to pieces!!

We decided to walk down to that prison and do the tour. It was used during the Vietnam War between 1964 to 1973. Senator John McCain was one of the prisoners there then. Hoa Lo Prison was here way before the Vietnam war though, it was opened in 1896 by the French. The French imprisoned Vietnamese patriots and revolutionist. They had life size models of the Vietnamese prisoners and how they lived in this prison.

On the way to the prison tour this lady stopped us to talk and take this picture.

It is hard to see in the picture but there is broken glass and bottles all in the top of this fence. It seriously turns my stomack everytime I see it.
