North Temple Pagoda

This weekend we decided to get back into tourist mode. Our first stop was the North Temple Pagoda, the largest pagoda south of the Yangtze River.

  1. Did you ask those silkworms where the mulberry trees are? I’m sure you wouldn’t say “no” to a jar of mulberry jam.

    I assume that temple is in Suzhou? Fantastic scenes from the top.

    Those dumpling looked delicious….I hope they were.
