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.

Just twenty minutes in and this game is already overhwelmingly beautiful. A shame my laptop can't keep up, though :/
Oh and by the way, I already died three times for trying to lure a one eyed ogre.

Babylonian badassery. Since I was a child I imagined what it must've been like to pass the Gate of Ishtar and now I've finally done it.
