Our bus tour of the city took us to the Cultural District, famous for paper goods, art supplies and materials used for calligraphy. We had time to visit several stores to shop and also see the cost of the art supplies. Calligraphy is an ancient Chinese art and many of the supplies are quite costly.

Matt and Lucy had to use the restroom while in the Art supply store, so they had their FIRST experience with the "hole." Clean, but definitely different, you can see that they do not use the western toilet that we are accustomed to having at home.

Dinner is at 6 p.m. - Welcome Banquet, featuring Peking Duck.

Love the picture of the "toilet". No wonder most Chinese people are so short :)
