Prior to that little debacle we spent the morning at the Hue Citadel. I always think of dynasties being very old (except for the one with Joan Collins) but the Citadel was home to the Nguyen Dynasty until it was defeated by the French in 1885 (and the dynasty continued to rule in a puppet type of way under the French all the way through to 1945). The Citadel was sacked and damaged by the French and then extensively bombed by the Americans so that only twenty of its one hundred and forty-eight buildings survived. They are working to restore the complex and what you can see is beautiful. So intricately carved, amazing 3-D frescoes, mosaics and vivid colours. Stunning.
Who wore it better?
