China: Day 4
After the game last night, we went to the silk market here. There were about 10 of us who took the subway. We were packed like sardines in there. It was quite an experience. We were so squished in there. Going out to the silk market was fun. It was like everyone had the best quality, everyone had the best deal.
I would like one more day here with absolutely nothing to do baseball wise. It’s like you finally have the lowdown on everything and now we’re leaving. I want more day.
This trip is going to be something I tell my kids and my grandkids about, that I was part of one of the first teams to come over here and experience everything that I did. I went to the Great Wall, that’s one of the seven wonders of the world, the Forbidden City. I feel as if I know the culture more so than I did before.
The only American food I had was the pizza we had here at the stadium. And even that wasn’t that good. I tried all the Chinese food out there. It something that I’m always going to remember.
