3 days ago, we were in Hue, Vietnam, where we were supposed to ride around on our bikes to a few of this ancient and lovely city’s sites by bike. Unfortunately, while our group sat eating our breakfast in the hotel restaurant, rain began misting down, and then the mist became drizzle. None of us wanted to spend the day in wet clothes, so we took the bus to the Tu Duc Tomb, which was interesting (I imagine it’s magnificent when the trees, flowers and lotus plants in the lake are in bloom!). We then saw the Citadel, which was built in the very early 1800’s for the royal family to live and rule. Only about 10 out of the original 160 sites in the Citadel remain, as fighting and bombs from the U.S. caused substantial damage to the Citadel and the city of Hue.
