Hue Imperial Palace, 2

Continuing our brief tour of the Imperial Palace in Hue...

Wider views

So was he doing the rice menu or the menu Francaise?

Third Empire?

Remnant of 1968?

Another for my collection

Wall and ceiling in one of the throne rooms

Dress-up apparently is really big in Vietnam; rental costumes; here, the grand-
parents pose with the grand-children; with permission, I am snapping away,
along with the professional photog, and the parents, all laughing away....

Road not taken, maybe to the ponds, maybe to the gardens

Street lanterns; we were tired, suffering from the heat, ready to go home and
watch the riot police practice

Cyclos massing for attack: pedaled conveniences, lining up for a tour bus of

One cyclo driver had been stalking us, haggling over the price; finally we
succumbed for a duo ride back to the south bank and the Little Italy resto of
our choice; it was certainly one of the more memorable rides of the last 11 years

Passing by the military history park (no thanks)

Across the historic bridge

And on, at length, to our destination; by pedal
