Bridges

The city is watered by many considerable streams, which, descending from the distant mountains, surround and pass through it in a variety of directions. Some of these rivers are half a mile in width, others are two hundred paces, and very deep, over which are built several large and handsome stone bridges, eight paces in breadth, their length being greater or less according to the size of the stream. From one extremity to the other there is a row of marble pillars on each side, which support the roof; for here the bridges have very handsome roofs, constructed of wood, ornamented with paintings of a red colour, and covered with tiles. [4]

When I could point at the sky and make a sword appear, a silver bolt of sunlight, and control its slashing with my mind, the old people said I was ready to leave. [5]

Orlando Jones slashed and parried by the stone bridge until her heart hurt.

The white statue of the gong fu swordswoman outside the Gongti Hotel window was in a classic Yuenu pose. This form of gong fu sword was called Yuenu sword and was invented by a woman, Yuenu. She taught it to the Imperial army (Orlando Jones didn't know which dynasty). In all dynasties (Tang, Ming, Qing) the sword was popular with poets, literary people and scholars. It was never very effective in actual battle and was soon abandoned as the weapon of choice. It became more decorative and ceremonial. In the Worker's Stadium Park, by one of the stone bridges across the lake, Orlando Jones began to learn Yuenu sword - Spinning Sword, Parrying Sword, Resting Sword (thrust), Raised Sword, and Hacking Sword.

Much later she learned Uppercutting, Intercepting (left and right), Tilting Sword, Upward Chop, Spin Sword and Sweeping Sword.
