June 16 Photo Updates

June 16: This morning, we took a boat ride down the Perfume River, and visited the Pagoda of Thien Mu (the center of Buddhism in Hue), the tomb of Emperor Minh Mang, and the Citadel of Hue (one of the oldest imperial fortresses in Vietnam, which suffered severe damage in both the first French war and the Tet Offensive of 1968). This was our first truly mild day (only 75 degrees), and despite the rain, everyone was in good spirits.
