Ming ting bing shing gorgeous

Ming at British Museum free with Claremont Project. Just the nine places, dear?

Ah, nice quiet BM on a November evening with its iconic façade lit up  and black railings shiny wet after the rains on London’s flagstones.

The Ming exhibition, costly at its price, is exceptionally well-laid-out what with jade coloured walls and plush red ones too.

We particularly liked quotes from past scholars emblazoned on the walls and then the jade jewels. We had to read twice the notes about boys captured and castrated in order to live as slaves in Royal palace. The film about ships in Ming times mesmerises. There was much to read and loads to ogle at.
