Saturday April 5th and Sunday April 6th, 2014 Post 

We are now in Hue, Vietnam.  Earlier this evening we flew from Hanoi to Hue to start our central part of Vietnam portion of the tour.  For the last 24 hours we were sailing on Halong Bay, then finished our tour of the Hanoi with some more time in the city prior to our 1 hour plane ride to the south. It is considerably warmer here than in Hanoi. Tomorrow we will sail up the perfume river, visit the forbidden city then begin our drive to Hoi An.

It has been a long day which started at 6:00 a.m. ( it is Sun April 6th 11:00 p.m. here now) of traveling and photographing prior to our flight, so I have posted a cross section of the last two days and will post more when we get to Hoi An tomorrow.

Enjoy the images from the last couple of days here in Vietnam and Good night from Hue.

One Happy Buddha! 


Six weeks ago we visited this same garden and this row was lettuce.

the young gal at boat side with Dan has given up her faux ermine collared sweater I see. I love the sign and the white herons in flight as well. Looks like another great Ha Long Bay visit.
Happy shopping on the Perfume River!! Good deals on silk clothing to be had.

It was nice to actually see the mountains around Halong Bay! Looks like it has warmed up quite a lot since we were there, no winter coats on. Have fun shopping ladies!!!
