China Beach is where US soldiers did their R&R during the war. Across from the beach the old abandoned US airforce hangars disintegrate slowly.
Soon they'll be demolished. The old bases are being turned into waterfront condos. Oh, and tourist hotels.
In the hills overlooking the beach, en route to Hue, we came across some old fortifications. Imagine being holed up here with the enemy watching you from anywhere and everywhere. Imagine being here at night.
Now, instead of war, a quieter way of life...
