Vietnam: Hue


Spring is coming

Grade stele for mandarins to position themselves in front of the king

King Tu Duc wrote his own biography
In this part he lamented that
"European bandits from nowhere came to assault this country"
This is not politically correct since
the westerners most sincerely came all the way
to modernize the Orient from their "barbarian" life
