They are beautiful photos...my Mum subscribes, I think I'll nick that issue, I have a growing collection of cave pictures on my bedroom wall, though
so far only ones that had been inhabited by humans...these ones I don't think were by the looks of it...I haven't read the article yet, so only
judging from the photographs. Thank you for posting the link.

I think what your Dad may be referring to, though I may be wrong, the 'Rat Runs'. These were networks of tunnels, man made, that the Vietnamese dug
as a means of moving behind the enemy or for just leaping out of the ground unexpectedly, as well as for just moving around or meeting in secret.
They were very effectively used I am sure remember reading, and some I think are still found intact, or partly intact, I should imagine they are a
tourist feature these days. But they were a resourceful bunch, I would presume they made good use of natural features too.
