Hồ Chí Minh statue over Hòa Bình Dam

The 18m high, 400 ton statue of Ho Chi Minh stands looking over Hòa Bình dam. It is said that that "when Ho Chi Minh crossed the Red River here in a boat during the nation's struggle for independence against America he was so frustrated with the difficulty that he proclaimed that when North and South are reunified a dam will be built to calm the mighty river" (ref Wikipediaòa_Bình_Dam).
