... It's a nice walk through a leafy area with sports courts and shops around. We arrived to a basic looking building considering how advanced the uni is however it was cooling to have the classroom doors open into the courtyard. The surrounding buildings were similarly plain.

Our next stop was the Jiangning Imperial Silk Manufacturing Museum in town. I’d read that there was a Hans Christian Anderson’s costume exhibit on, and was keen to see it.
