During the New Year we had a chance to stop off at a paper factory/museum/tourist spot. I’ve attended paper making classes before but it was interesting to see the large sheets of paper being created. We were lucky enough to get a tour of the facilities, but unfortunately for me it was all in Chinese.

And of course, Jaylene made a little paper project. I hope to have a post on that at a later time. Here she is signing her name using Chinese brush Caligraphy.

I’d like to go back and spend a full day there in the future.
