Xiamen.”My understanding of the Silk Road has deepened during the trip,” she says.She and her husband even made a point of studying Marco Polo and the Silk Road before climbing aboard.At the same time, a series of programs featuring traditional Chinese culture, such as tea, painting, calligraphy, opera and sculpture were hosted on the ship.Those programs were arranged by the Chinese Peoples
