2013 C2 OCEANIA - HUE

P1050216.jpg

Have now moved up the coast a little to Da Nang.

Today it's mostly just a bus ride with shopping stops & a photo op at the beach.

Heading out of the port, we cross over a bridge & look down on the bay..

& go visit a small museum.

The guide is taking way too long talking outside so I sneak inside on my own & there is a show about to start ....

Just about all the rest of the tour missed this but it was good.

Actual Vietnamese, no English at all.

Quite delightful..

Of course there was shopping but even I liked this one. Girls sitting at screens sewing silk embroidery into fabulous pictures. I saw more of these in China & it really is beautiful & exquisitely done. Must be very hard on the girls eyes..
No photos allowed in doors but this is a quick one outside the shop. too much glare on the photo.
