Cultural Event in Ningbo
We traveled to Ningbo with several people from Brian's school to attend a Cultural Event at the "Beyond Mandarin" school. Beyond Mandarin is on the 20th floor of a HUGE 50 story building in downtown Ningbo - overlooking the city, made me dizzy to look out the window. The wonderful staff gave presentations on Chinese music, calligraphy and the tea ceremony.
Here is a young man playing the gu - also known as "ancient instrument" - beautiful music! He accompanied the calligrapher and the tea ceremony as well.
