Wednesday was a sightseeing day for us. We saw all of the major things that Nanjing is known for.
We visited the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Museum. Its a very well done Museum in honor of the sacrifice, heroism, and great loss experienced in the events that happened in Nanjing years ago.
We also visited the Cloud Brocade Living Museum where they still make embroidery w/ elaborate 2 person looms. It takes 2 people working eight hours to finish less than 5inches of brocade. Tedious and yet the result is beautiful. Of course my kids asked "Isn't there a machine to do that?". However they were told that there isn't a machine that can duplicate what they do. Nanjing is well known for their embroidery.
We visited a Freshwater Pearl Farm and saw how they cultivated them. Bought Hope a little pearl bracelet for a future gift.
We also visited Dr. Sun Yatzen's Mausoleum. He is known as The Father of Modern China. There are 392 steps to the top of the memorial. Mark and the big kids climbed everyone. (Mark has regretted it ever since.)
It was a great day. "Meeka" quite enjoyed herself and her family. Lot of smiles with her dimples and wrinkled up nose.
