WE went to Sun Yat Sen's Mausoleum on the Purple Mountain even though my leg was very painful and I didn't think I was going to make it.We took a subway to the nearest station and then got a taxi up to the site of the Mausoleum.The sight of the stairs leading up was a bit scary but after we got started it was fine.I took it gradually all the way up,resting on every bench,and watching the little Chinese schoolkids tearing up to the top. Then saw the view from the top (a bit misty) and staggered down,and by the time we reached the bottom my leg was cured! My university students assured me this was a miracle! Anyhow I strongly advise on going as it was a wonderful experience.
