We’ve posted pictures from our Spring Festival break in Chengdu! Since we stayed in town, we took the opportunity to visit some places we hadn’t yet visited: WuHou Temple’s Lantern Festival, “Fun Street” and the WenShu Monastery, RenMin (People’s) Park, and the WangJiang Tower Park.
We also went to the Shangri-la hotel for a fantastic dinner buffet, but didn’t feel it was appropriate to take pictures there. There were dishes from India, South America, and the Middle East along with traditional Sichuan and Cantonese. To top it all off, they had three (yes, three!) chocolate fountains – dark, white and milk – so yummy!!
We’re back at school today, and are resisting the feeling that we have stepped onto a long slide leading all the way to June and Dallas. I think we will need many reminders to slow down and enjoy each day between now and then.
