Hue (pronounced Whay)

vietnam 474We arrived in Hue in time for lunch at a French/Vietnamese restaurant. I finally mastered chopsticks. They say that anyone can pick up one peanut with chopsticks, it takes skill to pick up 2 at once and if you can pick up 3 at the same time, you are a master. By that measure I’m still a novice.

A lot of it still shows damage from the various wars that raged back and forth, but parts have been restored with UNESCO money and look magnificent. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take photographs in the Throne Room which was the most magnificent.
