HANOI HILTON PRISON — Little remains downtown Hanoi of the prison known as Hoa Lo, a name loosely translated as “hell hole.”

There is one small room near the back devoted to a different group of inmates who languished for years: American prisoners of the Vietnam War.

To those POWs this was the Hanoi Hilton, a nickname that oozed irony and defiance, the kind of petty “thumb in your eye” that provided some small pride in a place designed to strip dignity away.

Checking out Cat Ba island on a scooter... got to go in 1 cave, 1 old North Vietnamese military hospital in a cave!!, and a cannon fort, that the Americans bombed in the vietman war.
