We stopped at a huge restaurant to get our lunch. The selection was huge and the prices were incredibly low. The four of us split up and wandered around the serving area's picking the food we wanted from Dim Sum, to fruit and veggies to typical Nanjing Dessert.
After lunch, we walked to the temple area and Joe launched into his now famous shopping spree. Within about 15min he was followed by people that were amazed at his capacity for buying stuff. Haha It was also funny to watch the shop keepers try to help him find his size. Once Joe got tired of buying stuff we rented a boat and took a tour down the river to see the old colonial houses, bridges and restaurants.
The following night we had a similar dinner with different hosts in a private table at the Jingling Hotel. This night they tried to get us hammered on Moutai which is the most famous yellow wine in China. Personally I like Moutai better than Baijiu. This night I paced myself better so that I didn't eat so much food. This was good because this was the night that the Chinese ganged up on me! Hahaha, I think I passed the test.
We took Jimmy to Nanjing 1912 since he missed it the last night. We went back to A8 since we had fun their that last night. Jimmy even got up danced like a crazy man. Hahah see the pix!
