Then And Now: "Really Elegant": The Hunting Lodge at Ban Me Thuot, 2007.
On 21 October 1965, Clark wrote in his diary, "On the way [to Qui Nhon] today we stopped at Ban Me Thout [sic] and visited with the Advisory Team there. They have a delightful place, a hunting lodge built by Emperor Bao Dai in 1951. Really elegant. I left my camera in the plane, so reckon I'll have to plan a return trip there some day to get pix."
Pictured above is the hunting lodge at Ban Me Thuot, taken in 2007. It was then a museum.
