September 5 - Hue-tastic!
Christi arrived in Hue in time for Vietnam's Independence Day. She explored the city's Citadel - well, what's left of it, and then wandered about the city to see what she could find.
BACK TO TOP
Small alleys are what make traveling so much fun.
The entrance to the Citadel - will there be splendors like those around the Mediterranean?
It was Independence Day, so entrance for locals was free - as you can see, people were excited about that. This is a country of motorbikes.
The tallest flagpole in Vietnam. I think the star should be replaced with a motorbike.
Umm, guys... where is the Citadel? I think it was supposed to be here... right?
High-powered business executive.
I found the gate to the Secret Garden!
We found a festival by the river - fun! Spring rolls, mango salad with dried beef, and rice-cakes.
Travelers enjoying the celebrations. The bridge reminds me of the Gwangan Bridge in Busan, South Korea - changed colors all night.
I decided to head over to the local market to find lunch - maybe I didn't pick the best time of day...
Strolling through the market, I found a dessert lady. Those purple things are pretty tasty, though they look - interesting.
Random head - you're being watched.
An old city gate.
"Cyclo? One hour. Cheap price. Hello, cyclo!"
I love trains.
It seems like everywhere in Vietnam is defined by a river and boat-activity.
