We had a nice opportunity to visit some of the sights in Shenyang today - a very large statue of Mao Zedong and the surrounding square, followed by an amazing palace that had belonged to one of the key figures in northeastern China's history.
I will tell you in advance that you will not be learning much of anything about the history of China from this post. It was more of an "Oh wow, look at that!" kind of day for me and my main focus was to take a bunch of pretty pictures and also somehow manage to keep my fingers from falling off due to the extreme cold.
So here are some of the pictures I took:
|This is either Zhang Xueliang or his son. They were both owners of the palace we visited.|
|playing hackysack in the square|
|Here's some info for you.|
|I like the tile on this stairwell.|
|This dude drove up rather suddenly and glared at us intimidatingly.|
|a very fancy ceiling|
|a wall plaque|
|Shenyang, Old and New|
