ancient capital

Posted by Hippo Bean at 11:59 PM
Huế - should have followed Anne's example to rest at the hotel but didnt want to miss the sightseeing. The Tu Duc mausoleum was again a disappointment. dilapidated, not ornate, just another simple chinese temple. When we went to see the garden tomb, I had enough. returned to the Cherish hotel and slept the whole day. The next morning I skipped the scheduled bicycle ride and just stayed at the hotel to rest and finished reading 'vulgar'. In the afternoon Anne who also skipped the sightseeing but went to the cycle ride in the morning, and I took a taxi to see the cidadel. The walls were impressive and aside from some colorful halls, again nothing too impressive. Most of the original structures were bombed out. We walked back to the hotel crossing the Perfume river. Dinner that night was on the riverside and I simply ordered a veggie rice noodle, not brave enough to start on proteins yet. So much for the ancient capital.
