Took a walk on the chity wall today, it's massive! Taking a bike wasn't feasible in the rain, unfortunately, still was very cool. Enjoyed some great views over the inner city and the surrounding park, the moat and the high rises behind them.

Astridone: Say whaaaaat?

Made it to Shilin county and spent the day at the scenic Stone Forest. It's one of the AAAAA Scenic Areas of China and it deserves that classification without any question! It rained and drizzled all of the time, but that didn't take away any of the tremendous beauty of the landscape. Can't even spell it out, just have a glimpse.

P.S.: Shout out to past-me for packing that rain cape I got back in '09 and only ever put to use once until now.

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.

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.
