As a teacher, though, I was more intrigued by the Wenchang Pavilion, dedicated to Kuixing (god of literature). Here, notes petitioning students' success overflow from two large bulletin boards. After writing my own notes on behalf of some of my students, I walked to the balcony, which offers a great view of the other pavilion, as well as of some tortoise tablets and shady trees.
