I was amused that one of the most famous attractions in the whole museum was a jade piece of cabbage and a jade rock that looked like meat. We couldn't bring cameras inside but here's a photo just so you can experience the magic of edible things in semi-precious stone:
So that was excellent and there was a whole second exhibition hall, legends of Western mythology, selected works from the Louvre, but we felt cultured enough for the day. We did some complicated language exchanging- trying to explain "cursive" and "nymph" were pretty epic challenges. I don't think I ever succeeded with nymph- using "playful" and "otter" to describe the more carefree type goddess just opened up such a can of worms, she's going to ask google about that one.

Anyway, we said our goodbyes and she left me with an awesome Beauty and the Beast thank you note. Now she's on the train and I'm watching Taiwanese karaoke as I update y'all. Hmmm... not sure what I'm going to do next- postcard hunt in the underground mall? I don't want to make the same mistake as India and leave without them. Bye bye!
