INTRODUCTION

Twenty-three loyal made the journey to Shanghai for the  Chinese plastination  experience.   Shanghai  is  an amazing  city.  Shanghai , how magnificent is your view on the river at night.  Time Travelers, Inc., courtesy of Mr. Ronn Wade, expertly organized not only a great trip also the setting to produce unforgettable memories That will   last   a   lifetime.   "Thanks   Ronn!"   Twelve participants and the eleven guests enjoyed the colorful presentations    from  the platform and via poster. Discovery of this ancient culture in its modern  setting was  enhanced  by  the  cultural  program  and  abundant meals.   Watermelon  was  the   staple.    Uniquely,    the meeting   continued   by   bus   to  Nanjing   through   the intriguing  countryside.  Professor  Zhong,   the plastination  factory  is  an  extremely  productive  plastination facility  and  your  work  with  the  Embalming  Research Institute and "ancient cadavers" is fascinating. _   Nanjing: another  wonderful  city,  bursting  into  the  21st   century mixing  new  and  the  ancient  in  a  splendid  manner (people, bicycles and traffic everywhere)!

ABOUT TEMPLES, PAGODAS  and TERRACOTA SOLDIERS

After the scientific meeting in Shanghai and Nanjing, we had the opportunity to visit the prosperous city of Xian. This visit gave us the opportunity to admire what the Chinese people consider the eight wonder of the world: the terracotta soldiers (below). A magnificent army made of fired clay during the Emperor Quin's Dynasty. More than seven thousand life-size figures were moulded and graved (buried  several  feet  deep). The warriors are located in perfect  formation  for fighting, with uniforms, weapons and combat carriages. The city has also other valuable monuments: the Wild Goose Pagoda  from the Tang period (VI century AD) and the thermal water lake, where the Emperor's concubines took  their bathes. Both are surrounded by beautiful gardens and intricate details decorate the Pavilions. From Xian we moved to Beijing where we visited Tianamen Square, the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City and of course the Great Wall (below). Another Beijing highlight was the College of Veterinary Medicine. The anatomical teaching aids were magnificent. In Chengde we visited the Emperor's summer palace and a Lamasery, Buddhist Temple. Our China tour ended in Beijing with most looking for last minute shopping bargains and finally with a wonderful Roast Duck Banquet.

We were all impressed by the rapid sociocultural development of the cities we visited , especially Shanghai and Beijing. They boast luxurious, modern hotels and buildings , which soar to the sky everywhere. The Chinese are working hard to improve their tourism facilities day by day.

We wish to thank all of our Chinese hosts who helped along the tour route, especially Fong who was with us for the entire tour. The kindness and hospitality of the Chinese people was shown to us as we travelled through the idyllic landscape splashed with ethnic minorities who offer their culture, beautiful clothes, music and dances.
