Soft as Silk – China Day 9

Written and posted March 11th, 2018

Today we went to the Jade Buddha Temple and Yu Yuan Garden, toured a silk factory, explored Shanghai, walked around the Bund waterfront and Nanjing road, visited the world’s largest Starbucks, and saw an acrobatic show that was incredible.

Enjoy the photos!

    What beautiful photographs! The one of the young boy and the cherry blossom branch captures his absorption with whatever it is he’s holding. You all are fortunate to see the cherry blossom trees blooming in China! The silk factory sounds fascinating. I believe there is a legend about the Emperor of China’s daughter discovering the threads when a cocoon dropped into a cup of tea she was drinking in the palace garden.
