No clue why he's trying to sell this turtle. Or why, y'know, he's wearing a hard hat. All I know is that he really, REALLY wanted us to buy that turtle.
Jason took us to the Six Banyan Buddhist temple here in Guangzhou yesterday morning and we had Beatrix Nan Yu blessed by the monk. I stayed far, far, far away from the Buddha's belly because "one touch, one child." I think I'm pretty much all done now, thanks.
While we were there, Jason taught us how to throw coins into this little hickamajiggy (that is, indeed, the technical term for it) - if you get the coin inside the hole, you will have good luck. If you get it in one hole and out the other, your whole family will have good luck. Guess who got the double shot, baby? *struts around proudly* Oh, yeah.
After the temple -- and after we turned down Turtle Dude for the third, fourth, and fifth time -- we went to the local folk art museum. The carvings in this place were incredible - everything was so intricate. The doors, the walls, the archways, the roof. I cannot even begin to imagine how much time that took.
