Is it really you Nanjing man?

sunny 80 °F

I believe today that I saw Nanjing man's skull, finally. I went to the Nanjing Municipal Museum and there it was. Two pieces of two different skulls of two people that could've been the missing link. I think the jury's still out on that.

Behind the museum there is a wonderful garden. A perfect retreat from the city.

Singlehandedly spoiled by this crazy woman dancing and taking Tiktok videos to loud traditional Chinese music under this fragrantly blooming tree.

Lots of interesting old stuff in the museum, like this rickshaw:

This big guy can be found at the entrance of many rich guys' tombs, scaring away evil spirits.

An old sculpture. Google tells me this is an armillary sphere.

Then I went to my favourite Chinese store, Da Run Fa. There is always a motorized sidewalk like this and everyone always does this. Why? It's not The Jetsons, you can use your legs!

While I was waiting for the moving sidewalk, I took this selfie because I realized how Handmaid's Tale I look in my auntie hat.
