Catching Up in China: Nanjing Part 2

Long live the workers of the revolution!
We really enjoyed slowing down a bit while we stayed in Nanjing.  The first site we visited was a very lovely pagoda (the name escapes me now) in the midst of a very large park.  The park also had a monument dedicated to the workers of the Revolution.

"More love, more spring scenery."

Many, many stairs to the pagoda. And many more inside.

With our fabulous tour guide, Crystal!

Cool rooftop architecture

No idea. A big spider on top of a foot.  In jade.

Everything is a slide!
Then we walked around the park and feed peacocks!  It was so cool!

Eleanor thought they were very cool, and liked to dump the food out for them to eat by our feet.

Then we wandered around more of the park, enjoying the scenery. It was cold, but very lovely.

Bamboo Grove

So romantic...
It was too bad we didn't have more time to explore the park because it was huge and pretty.  But also FREEZING! There were quite a few monuments dedicated to communism, and even something akin to a museum as I recall, which would have been fascinating.

  1. Just catching up on your blog and I have to say that the jade foot cracks me up. I've kinda had feet that resembled that before! Random I know.
