Temple of the Six Banyan Trees
Saturday and Sunday were sightseeing days in Guangzhou. On Saturday, we went to the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees. As I did in 2002, I climbed to the top of the pagoda. There are steep steps with very narrow walk ways that lead up to the top of the pagoda. Emily also climbed to the top. Elsewhere at the temple, the adopted children in our group received a Buddhist blessing. Afterwards, we went to the Guangdong Museum of Folk Handicrafts.
On Sunday, we went souvenir shopping in the shops surrounding the White Swan Hotel. Later, in the afternoon, we went to the Guangzhou Zoo.
