... day there. I limited myself to the Ancient China exhibit followed by an exhibit on the history of Chinese currency. Both were fascinating. Unfortunately, they do allow people to take photos which kind of detracts from the museum experience as one finds oneself drawn to photograph things rather than just experience them. Oh well.

Still, Tianmen square at night - especially on a rainy night, is only thinly populated with mostly vagrants and, on this night, umbrella sellers. It’s not a great place to be.
Meanwhile, we had attracted a few onlookers who had come to grin goofily at our taxi situation. The ...
