FAMILY TEMPLE, Saigon, VN. Day 7. Today was another temple day, but with my relatives on both sides of the family. The temple is unique in that it is one of the oldest and well-preserved Chinese temples in Saigon, dating back to the early 1900s during French Indochina, about fifty years before WWII and the Vietnam War. After a three-hour Buddhist ritual, the service women that maintain the temple cooked us several vegetarian dishes for lunch.
