Silk Museum, Suzhou, China: The 2K1 Tour

At this point we noticed the sign which says not to take photos....ooops.

A display of silk worms.

The store.  There is also a clothing store, full of silk products, which can be purchased down the street for a quarter the price here.  There are many Japanese tourists and the prices in the store are cheaper than in Japan, so I guess both Chinese and Japanese are happy with the arrangement.  There are so many Japanese who come to the store, that Sally was mistaken for a Japanese tourist as we went up the stairs to the store.  A clerk said something to her in Japanese, I said in Chinese she isn't Japanese but Chinese, he apologies to me in Chinese and Sally says to him in Chinese I'm Canadian....understand?
