Yesterday was Temple day. We visited two of the major temples
Lama and Tanzhe. They are beautifully maintained. Each had
large crowds of visitors and worshippers.
Today was a personal photography day. I went to a popular park
at 8 AM. There were Tai Chi areas, dancing, rope jumping, games
and card playing. One of the most popular games is a version of
racketball but you don't hit the ball. You catch the ball on a special
paddle and throw it. I bought a set. They also played badmitten
without a net.
I went to the Oriental Mall. It is several King of Prussia's size with stores
equal to 5th Avenue and Rodeo Drive combined. I also went to the largest
medical book store I have ever seen with texts in Chinese, English, Russian,
French and German.
This evening we are having a lecture at the art school and will be
presenting our work.
