 :groan: "party animals"...  :funny:  close, puddin...
but I suspect it's something connected with the popular Vietnamese Mid Autumn Festival for children.  

giraffe
Mid Autumn Festival
Childrens Festival

Hence the giraffe (and ram?) and dancing lions (popular in any festival).   ;D  they were a few months early, but that never stopped BVM  :lol:  or maybe not  :duno:

I guess that Matt does the Roadblock. Hence the dirt on his shoulders.



And that Tiffany does it as well. Otherwise what an odd stain on her Bra!

I found the darn thing!  :jumpy:


Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater

The park, water Puppets and the Circle Sportif
There is a park behind Reunification Palace, which used to be the Presidential Palace. In the Park is the Circle Sportif> The Circle Sportif was a club for the elite of French Saigon Society. There were Tennis Courts, Lawn Bowling, A restaurant and a Swimming Pool. This was a place for Officers during the American War. Now it is a public place. In one section of the building is a cultural center where there were people singing. I looked in and a man came and invited me in to see the performance. In another section of the building is the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater.


lots of goodies here!

Thanks guys !  :jumpy: So what comes first? Detour or Roadblock ..? Teams were seen running around the palace but now we know why but is the pitstop there as well? Now I'm not so sure?

So, judging by the balloons...the Trotters are almost finished with their Detour, but Greylock is just starting.

If they saw Phil near the tank, it should be the Pitstop.

So maybe smashing RB, then puppets, then Pitstop? :duno:

But WHAT is the other half of the Detour?? ???

And guess waht...the Saigon zoo is right next door!! :groan: :lol: (TARA 3)

Boingo,
This particular reenactment of the Children's Mid Autumn Festival is on or near July 23, so it is not exactly autumn in Vietnam. However, that would not stop Bertram van Munster if he wanted to stage it for the benefit of AR15 viewers.

Maybe the animals are just props for a water puppet performance? ???
