China Trip (Nanjing-Wuxi)

On the 2nd day, we proceeded to Nanjing. Our 1st stop was at Yu Hua Tai. The historical park of Yu Hua Tai houses a monument built to commemorate the Chinese martyrs.

There are actually some Feng Shui theories for such architecture and design of the park (about why there's a pool of water in the middle etc..), but because of my incompetency in mandarin, I'd rather have my readers to check wikipedia for more information.

After that, we proceeded to the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge.

One thing I like about Nanjing is the cool breeze. When we went up to the tower, the wind was blowing like anything, and I only brought a pashmina, which was of little use.

On this day itself, the temperature dropped to 22 degrees celcius. Cool!

After that, we visited the war memorial (or mass grave of 300,000) during the Nanjing Massacre.

As a sign of respect, it's best not to take photographs. The excavated human bones were real.

And peace to the departed souls and the nation

After that, we proceeded to Wuxi for the night.
