Well I am told that it wasn't a mushroom that I ate but something on the innards line. I did think it looked reptilian, but it tasted mushroomy, very nice in fact. More amazing food today, we are being so well hosted that I think I will need treatment to clear accumulated damp. Our Acupuncture hospital gave us a lovely breakfast with little dumpling things and a rice porridge and a spectacular green tea. And then our sightseeing began. We visited a thought provoking excavation of the Second Nanyue King Zhao Mo's burial tomb. Which had his burial suit of jade in near perfect condition, and the belongings of his concubines who were also sent to his tomb on his death....... I think the tomb was finished 122bc
Then on to the Sun Yat-Sen memorial Auditorium, a lunch of Dim Sum, visit to The Chen Family Temple and Folk Museum and them on to the herbal market. Everything can be seen here from dried black goats tongues, dried lizards on a stick, live scorpions which are made into a soup, and all sorts of animal bits and pieces that i wouldn't want to mention here, as well as many different fungi and herbs. This is the main system of medication in China.
Tomorrow I begin my learning at the hospital, I hope to manage to get up in time. I managed to sleep through three people banging on my door and my alarm this morning.... I have put it on loudly..
I also hope to figure out how to put photos on the blog..
