I was met at the Drum Tower at 8:00 am. The square was already busy with people exercising and dancing which was an inspiration to me as many of the people were elderly and looked like they were having fun. The tutor gave me instruction on the basics of Tai Chi which was very enlightening although I did have trouble concentrating and relaxing my mind but that was just me. I was then met by Eva who took me to a Hutong which was preserved with lovely antiques from her relatives. She showed me the basics of calligraphy and paper cutting which I enjoyed, although I would have like to do more of the paper cutting. We took a short walk back to the Drum Tower and I had a demonstration on how to make a kite, followed by a painting lesson and make a theatre mask which I enjoyed tremendously. I also made a small panda out of air-drying clay which was great fun. All in all I thoroughly enjoyed the day and the lunch provided was lovely.
