Also, I'm not sure how I feel about the vacant-eyed mascot they've chosen... it's MUCH cuter than the Shanghai EXPO mascot, Haibao, though.

|Umm.... I don't think this was part of the EXPO.|
And for comparison, the Youth Olympic Games Mascot:
|What is he looking at?!?!?|
Anyway.... enough of that.
So I took a stroll through the outer park, looking for a way in. Which was still a lovely walk.

After a look around and asking lots of questions I found another entrance which let me walk on the old city walls of Nanjing. There were some great views!
|You can see the skyscrapers downtown from here, too|
There was a small temple complex, as well.
|Look at me! I'm on a wall!|
