Mudu is an ancient water town on the outskirts of Suzhou, accessible at the very western end of the Metro line. It’s a nice afternoon’s outing, but can’t really compete with the other water towns in the area as a tourist destination. It does, however, have a suberb little museum with metalwork, ceramics, porcelain, and everyday items dating as far back as the Han Dynasty. A very enthusiastic museum guide showed me the entire collection, even though I only understood about 10% of what he said in Chinese.

The weather finally started getting permanently warmer, and soon the humid days of summer will be here. In the meantime, I enjoy walking to school each morning, and enjoying the beautiful landscaping and flowering trees along the way.
