Day 2 - March 12

I haven't seen any detailed schedule yet, leanne, the official website usually does not offer as
detailed programmes as other royal houses do.

And thank you as well, Lina RdC!


Here are pics from day 2, March 12:



Crown Prince Philippe and Crown Princess Mathilde attended a wreath-laying ceremony at the mausoleum
of late Vietnamese revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi and visited the Vietnam National University.

You are most welcome, leanne!


It's always a pity when such a journey ends, you quickly get used to the large number of daily pics..


Here are some more additions of the last days - according to the last article the tour has been quite
successful, fifteen contracts have been signed.

Thanks iceflower for all your work sharing the pics with us. I agree with you, it's pitty when these trips come to an end.

It's nice to know 15 contracts have been signed. Sometimes it's dificult for the public to understand why these trips/visits are made and how useful they can be for a country. So, to have a number is helpful
