While sightseeing around the city, we visited a very famous Buddist monastery/temple. Upon entering most temples, the entrances are flanked by two lion statues - one male and one female. The lion has one paw on top of a globe, symbolizing his power. The lioness has her paw on a cub, and it's said that if a woman rubs the cub, it can help bring her children.
So guess what I did?
Yet another Chinese fertility ritual to try. If it works, I will be importing some of these lioness' to the States and setting up clinics to "Rub the Cub" all over (yes, I realize that the phrase sounds somewhat pornographic, but that may also be my warped mind).
It seems weird to me that they have all of these fertility rituals, teas and herbs, etc. to help you get pregnant, yet they have a one-child per family policy still in effect.
