Vietnam Dalat Emperor Bao Dai
I took a walk to Bao Dai's Summer Palace. Emperor Bao Dai was the last royal to head a government in Vietnam. He abdicated in 1945 in favor of Ho and the Viet Minh and died many years later in France.

I was most struck with the modesty of this place. Many signs reported that everything was just as it was when Emperor Bao Dai and his family occupied the residence although after 1945 many government officials made use of the place.
