Day 1 in Tianjin

Sunday morning we traveled by bus from Beijing to Tianjin. Tianjin is a city of about 11 million people near the China coastland. They have a very rich cultural history which we learned about at the Tianjin Museum. Part of the entrance to the museum is shown in the top photo and the exterior is shown in the bottom photo. We spent some time at Nankai University and they hosted us for a very nice dinner last night. Today will be a huge day with various official meetings at Nankai University Binhai College including a signing ceremony, a dragon boat race, and a big gala in our honor tonight. Can't wait.
