Canton of Middlegate
Some time between 1275 and 1279, Marco Polo has visited the Khan and is now traveling south through China during the twilight years of the Southern Song Dynasty. It’s winter, and time for the New Year celebrations to begin. So he pauses in his journey to ring in the new year in style. His fellow travelers from the Canton of Middlegate hope you will join us!
