preto de Muxuyuan, Jiangsu (China)

Nanjing Museum entry is free with an original valid Chinese ID or foreign Passport. There are displays of art and artifacts from each of the principle Dynasties of China, most of which had their headquarters at Nanjing. The museum is said to be the second largest of its kind in China.

There is a section of the original Ming Dynasty city wall within walking distance of the Museum, with access inside the wall and for several kilometers along on top. There are good views of Purple Mountain and a lake park from on top of the wall.

Part of this walk follows canals, the other part passes narrow traditional shopping streets with simple food, a pure local environment where getting lunch may require some vocabulary and cultural skill, or a Mandarin speaking guide.

Walk towards Museum

Waypoint is at the canal crossing. The walk from the subway passes the "Taiwan party old office" (The former Nationalist Government Headquarters). Madame Chiang, wife of the Nationalist Chinese Leader, favoured a special kind of tree and had them planted all along this avenue.

    For some reason my South China urban Wikilocs, initially selected onto Google Earth, were later batch-deleted from Google Earth. Not sure if any others experienced this. My countryside and North China urban Wikilocs and outside-China Wikilocs all stayed on Google Earth. Perhaps there is extra sensitivity in parts of South China on some kinds of photos? There is still some conflict between [Google and other Western social media] and China. China has introduced a rival Chinese app something like Wikiloc, and Baidu Map took over the space occupied by Google Map outside China.
