From The Palace

During the Open Streets TO on Bloor St, this young man in costume was wandering outside the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM)  and posing for pictures with passersby. He was there to publicize the "Forbidden City" show at the museum which displays treasures from the Beijing Palace Museum, many of which have never left China before.

So nice photo.A lot of Chinese treasures ( from the ancient times) are in British Museum in London. Worth visiting.

Nothing like having your picture taken with a Ming Dynasty courtier. Lovely.

I can see why he draws people to him, dressed like that.

I'd love to get down to the ROM to see this exhibit. Maybe when my husband is walking a bit better.
