Closet of Wonders

Also available in: Italian

The cloak, the flag and even the monk’s robe … all inside the closet of wonders!

Position

Our little magical place is only a few kilometers from Hue, in the suburbs that lead to the highway 1A – AH1.

I managed to get in thanks to the help of an inhabitant of the area who simply let me free enter removing the wire that blocked the entrance.

History

Formerly used as a meeting and association center for those who practice Kayak (see red banner), it is now used exclusively as a storeroom by the monks of the nearby temple.

Description

As soon as I woke up (6 am), after spending the night in a tent in a nearby temple, I rush towards the center of Hue.

After passing the wooden bridge, I notice a house on my left that immediately attracts my attention. In front there is a kind of wooden canoe, multicolored but without the oars. Going around I can not find a possible entry except when I go to ask a young guy in the area.

Thanks to the offline translator I can make him understand that I would like to visit this house, and so he immediately try to open me the door. He removes the wire that blocks it and I’m inside.

A single room, with two wardrobes and two trunks filled to the brim with clothes and tunics. On the wall a red banner with a yellow inscription reads: long life to the socialist republic of Vietnam!

In a corner, hidden by dust, a speaker and a chest, used to reach as many people as possible with their message.

Now under centimeters of dust lie only words and images of some past regattas.
