Bảo Đại was the was the 13th and final Emperor of the Nguyễn dynasty, the last ruling family of Vietnam.  We went over to his house, but he wasn't home.  He died in 1997.

Bic was a student here in Đà Lạt where she studied Russian.  She told me about a fancy hotel she had often walked past, wondering what it might look like inside.  So, I booked a couple of nights at the Đà Lạt Palace hotel.  We weren't disappointed.

This was our first visit to the XQ school of embroidery in Đà Lạt.  Some of the art here would be fit to hang in the world's best art museums.  We go back every time we visit Đà Lạt.
