Before dinner we had a meeting of all 14 riders and six support staff, to hear the way the ride would be organized. Impressive group of folks. We have two mechanics and four drivers, so that members of the group can ride at different paces, and stop along the way as they please. I’m anxious to begin riding. But before that, we get to experience Hue.Our first night in Hue the group was treated to a “Royal Dinner”. We were given attire appropriate to the court of the Nguyen dynasty; Laura as the youngest woman was selected as Queen.
We had a half dozen singers and musicians performing between courses, and each of fifteen courses was elaborately presented.
