Hue, Vietnam

Our time in Hue has been more than amazing, and WOW is it hot here.

Temples, pagodas, tombs…This along with beautiful scenery makes Hue a perfect place to soak up history and the local flavor. Last night was a full moon and incidentally, August is the 7th month in the Chinese calendar. Buddhists believe that during this time called Ghost Month, the gates of the underworld open and the dead roam looking for food and drink, visiting family members and looking for victims. The living try to appease the ghosts by praying, burning paper money, incense and offering food at street side shrines and altars. Tomorrow we’re off on a 7 hour motorcycle ride to Hoi An, so should be stunning and exciting. Updates to come soon…

Happy traveling,
Monica
