I landed in the town of Hue. Hue is in the central region of Vietnam on the coast of the South China Sea. Phuong, the guy on the right, hosted me. He is a private teacher of English. He actually let me sit in on one of his lessons and chat with his students. It was lots of fun for me and I hope that it was good practice for them. As a way to thank Phuong for his hospitality, I decided to share a little of my culture with him and his students… so I prepared for them a meal of TexMex.

artist in residence opportunities.
In addition to the foundation, the Le Brothers are artists and have a number of projects in the works at any time. One ongoing art project utilizes this simple set.
Each day they stage a different visual, photo it and video it. The images are shared online and assembled into a composition. I believe at some point they will be publishing a book with all the images.
The Emperor's throne
One of the last things that I wanted to check out before I departed Hue, was to visit this pagoda. The Thien Mu Pagoda lies along the Perfume River. The pagoda has seven storeys and is the tallest religious building in Vietnam. The temple is often the subject of folk rhymes and ca dao (mythology) about Huế, such is its iconic status and association with the city. It is regarded as the unofficial symbol of the former imperial capital.
