river side Dong Ba market…

locals along the Perfume River

We're approached by a local woman and asked if we'd like to take a boat ride to some of the river side sights,
at the time we had no plans, so after “deciding” on a fair price for the day with stops and lunch included we set off—

taking it all in

Thien Mu Pagoda
(the next 12 photos)
The oldest in Hue
This was the temple of Thích Quảng Đức. The monk who was made famous during the VietNam war for setting himself on fire to protest against the persecution of Buddhists > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thích_Quảng_Đức [null]

a polished Buddha

does this car look familiar?

Strange enough, they also have Thích Quảng Đức's heart saved in a box.

Lunch on the water
salad, egg omelet, shrimp in noodles, and my favorite garlic morning glory

Now at The Mausoleum of Emperor Tu Duc
