OMG. Ideaaaaa! Let's go time travel to Post-Classical China!!!!! After a few zooms and zaps we will be able to witness the great Middle Kingdom.
Here we are in the Tang dynasty.
Who here is prepared to take the Civil Service exam in hopes of bettering yourself and ultimately becoming a scholar gentry.
Hey y'all it's me An Lushan and I am here to attempt to take over. Grr be afraid!!!!
So you say you are from Africa. I did not know they dressed like you. You must've come to see Xuanzang, our seeker and spreader of Buddhism. Or perhaps you came to witness our equal field system so you can apply it to your country and help farmers. OR is it to witness our fast ripening rice, so you too can have a food surplus. Being able to harvest twice is pretty awesome. Do you hear somethi-
I've seen enough, let's yeet!
Phew, that was a close one...Oh Hello we are from Africa
Yikes that sucks... where are you headed?
I was curious about wood block printing, so I snuck out on my house to witness some printings for myself. Especially with all this talk about Neo-Confucianism and Zen-Buddhism. Everyone is saying that Neo-Confucianism is better because it deals with issues of the soul. Others say that Zen-Buddhism is better because it relates to Daoism. I would personally like to see some Buddhist scripture for myself. Please don't tell anyone. Anyways I better get going, while you are here you should see the Grand Canal down the road. Okay, farewell.
Ow! Ow! Ow! Oh greetings I am Yang, welcome to the Song Dynasty. Pardon the noise, I just got foot binding. It is suppose to show wealth and make us prettier, but I feel like a criminal being tortured.
Wow. Look at those unsinkable junks.
okay guys, with the help of our developed magnetic compass, we should be in Abbasid in no time. Okay export checklist. Porcelain, check! Tea, check! Silk, check! Soooo.... have y'all heard of flying cash. At first I thought it was money with wings. HAhAhAhA. Anyways, the way it works is we can deposit paper money somewhere and apparently take out the same amount somewhere else. I might just try it out for myself. You all are awfully quiet.
Y'all have to see this!!!
I just made something explode. I think I will call it gunpowder. I MADE IT MOM!!!!
