Today I went to the waterfront where Daguan Pavillion is located. To my surprise it turned out to be mixed in with a kind of amusement park. Lots of boat rides, costume vendors and the likes in between huge lotus lakes. I'm lucky to still hit the end of the flowering season, it's just so beautiful. And by the way: lotus root was one of my favourite parts of the hotel breakfast in Chengdu.

One of the pavillions held a lot of these wooden reliefs. Unfortunately Engrish information is mostly provided at the entrance of such rooms and rarely for individual pieces.

I visited Wenshu Monastery this morning, the most important of the four most important (yeah, you read that right) Zen Buddhist monasteries. It's just a quick morning walk away from my HQ and really a magnificent place. Even with many visitors it's very tranquil as most of them go there to pray and for once it's not all about taking photos. Might as well be the reason that this day was the first without anyone asking to take a shot with me :O

Spent the morning in lovely Huanhua Xi Park, it's so nice there that I might just go again! The serene bamboo groves, lots of waterways, pagodas and other places to just sit back and relax are so soothing by themselves, I don't really get why they have to run cheesy background music through speakers masqueraded as small rocks everywhere. And sprinkled in between all of that there's a couple of tea houses filled with mostly elderly folks audibly enjoying their games of Mahjong. I used to play it a lot when I was younger, but unfortunately can't quite remember the rules anymore.

Part of the park is dedicated to Du Fu, one of China's most well respected poets on par with Li Bai. The thatched cottage he dwelled in and several pagodas have been reconstructed after originals dating from the Tang to Qing dynasties.

First stop Renmin/People's Park. Felt like I've been here for a whole week when I arrived after a 30 minute walk. Lots of folks spending their Sunday morning there, gathering in groups chanting, dancing and Tai Chiing away.
