many steps to climb at last mausoleum, these guys really make you work for it. thank goodness i trained for this with four days on the inca trail not long ago. but i digress

Our last stop for the long. long day is Khai Din’s tomb. He was the last emperor of Vietnam. I was almost too tired to see this one, but I’m glad we made the effort because I think his tomb is definitely the most beautiful. He clearly had better taste than his ancestors! But he was known to be a puppet of the French, and not too popular with the Vietnamese. Well you can’t please ’em all.
