We took a train it Hue too. It took all day - 11 hours. Toby and I sat in the top bunk and looked out the window. Mum read us Fantastic Mr Fox, we watched a movie and played some games. The train was wobbly and bumpy. It was also a bit dirty and smelly.
Hue is a beautiful little town. In the morning we had a look around the resort. The pool is huge bigger than the school pool. I have had lots of fun swimming lengths.
We had a walk around a very busy market. They were selling toys, clothes, stinky fish and dried flat squid. We walked around the Citidel which is like a town within walls. There were lots of buildings to walk around and it was boiling hot. We saw two elephants. We wanted to have a ride but Dad didn't think they looked that well cared for. We fed some big orange fish. They all fought for the food and made a horrible gobbling noise.
The Kai Dinh Tomb was cool, it was up lots of stairs again. Here we are standing with some stone warriors
The night market was cool and the bridge looked lovely lit up at night as well as this restaurant which changed colours.
We had some clothes made. I got a silk dress and Toby got a Paleontologist outfit.
Bella made friends with the little girl in the shop who was also three but much smaller than her
Our favourite place to eat was a cafe called Octopussy. We made good friends with the staff and played pool.
On the last day we went back to the market to buy Conical hats. All of the Vietnamese people wear them. They help to keep you cooler. Our hats cost $1 each
