A lady in my Mandarin class asked me on Tuesday if I could recommend any Chinese museums of natural history to her. She is especially interested in seeing any dinosaur exhibits and asked me because she knew I was interested,(I think the rather grumpy grunts I gave when she told me her son was in Patagonia may have given her a clue.) I'm very ashamed to admit that I had no idea.
Would anybody on the list mind giving me some examples for her? The lady in question speaks reasonably good Mandarin and is a seasoned traveller.
Thank you in advance for any advice you could give, I'm sorry if this is viewed as being rather off topic and promise to go back to lurking in the future.
