I arrived in Nanjing early morning, to see Dr.sun mausoleum, which is 392 steps to climb to his restting point. Dr.sun is the person resonbility for ending the dynastic rule in china and the first president of china. The view from the top is amazing, you can see a lot of the countryside and the hills and forests that surround the area. The climb up the stesp was easy as there were platfroms to rest from but i did not stop for a rest. Down at the Parking lot there is of course the expensive empty shops, and if you enter a shop the shop attendents follow you about thinking that will help you to buy something, so not a place to shop.

After the sight seeing and excerise of the tomb, a quick journey to thr Dynasty style bazzar, a shopping area, but first a quick tour around a temple, which has nice art work and the shop at the temple was cheap and decent selling all sort of antiques. After the temple, time to shop. It was intersting to go around the small narrow streets with hundreds of stalls, selling all  sort of things. I bought a musical instrument, a chi im still trying to playing a note, not as easy as i thought. An hour of shopping and it was back to the crusie boat to travel to Yellow Mountain
