I ended up purchasing two paintings, one of a warrior and the other a painting of a Chinese mountain scenery. I ended up lugging these two scrolls around for most of the day. David ended up buying two pots for 30 RMB a piece, and some other antique items he could give away as gifts to friends
The first stop of course were the Chinese paintings and calligraphy. Afterwards we split off and wandered around the various locations. I personally had my eye on some walnuts for juggling in one's own hands. It was an old Beijing habit of exercising your fingers, I figured it to be a pretty good gift for people back home.
By the end of the day, I did not purchase the walnuts or anything else, I ended up with the two paintings I had acquired earlier in the day as gifts for family members. David and I left early as we were pretty tired and had to get ready for our trip tomorrow to Yunnan. So we left Jackie and Eeling at the market and took an unlicensed taxi back to the subway station as we were lazy from the summer heat.
