"Cloisonné factory." Cloisonne Factory Visit Tip by Guantanamera

Cloisonne Factory Visit, Beijing: 3 reviews and 7 photos

 
 

We stopped at a government-owned cloisonné factory on the way to the Great Wall. The pic shows a giant cloisonné vase that was on display. The people in the pic are members of my tour group, including our guide, Miss Li. The distinguished gentleman is Dr. Lynch, one of the more interesting chaps I met on my trip around the world. He is a neuropsychiatrist that worked for many years with Aldous Huxley on researching the drug LSD. He was even the inspiration for characters in a couple of Huxley's works, including the young student in 'The Genius and the Goddess' and the doctor in 'Island'. The two ladies were scientists from the Mayo Clinic.
