outside the Temple- red ribbons and golden leaves
It's raining, it's pouring... You get the point.  I went out early in the afternoon to do some sightseeing, only to find it was raining.  I decided to eat lunch at the hotel, hoping for the rain to stop.  But to no avail.  I wandered around the hotel for a few minutes, and was relieved to find it had stopped.  Outside, I flagged down a taxi, and pointed out on a card where I wanted to go.

I opted for the Confucius Temple (Fuzi Miao) because it was easy.  I'll save the park for tomorrow.  I got dropped off at the end of a pedestrian-only street, which had boring stores.   The first thing of interest that I came upon was the Qin Huai River and the Wende Bridge.  After a bunch of pictures, I went to the temple.  Inside was a path lined with statues of some of Confucius' famous disciples.  There was thankfully no incense in either of the burners!  Behind the main statue of Confucius was a hall with a performance (when I get access to YouTube, I'll put that video up). 

Nothing else of interest, so I left the temple.  Outside was a tree that looked like it was made of gold (and it had red ribbons)!  Not real, but oh well.

In the temple, the rain began again.  So I got another taxi, and went back to the hotel.  My fingers are crossed for better weather tomorrow.
