Chengdu,China

Flew into Chengdu today around 1:30pm; oh my…the Kempinski Hotel is best one yet! Overlooking highly populated city of 14 million, very luxurious! We had one hour to freshen up, then went to an incredible park of multitudes of bamboo species and incredible landscaping! So beautiful! In this park we sat in a teahouse sipping jasmine tea and relaxed! Was so peaceful! Then we went to a restaurant where the 4 of us who are vegetarian received the most choices of food on whole trip! For most meals several entrees and sides are placed on a large glass lazy Susan rotating centerpiece and we all at each table share the food; then we drove through the Chengdu version of China Town to a teahouse where we watched a great show of several artists(a puppeteer, a hand shadower, an operatic act, a changing faces act and 3 other acts; all were magnificent!
It is 11:30 pm here and since I have to be at breakfast at 7am, I will say good night! Oh…breathing all the way to my ribs again since we are out of Sacred. Tibet’s high altitude.
Tomorrow’s agenda is hanging with pandas, a professional visit to a hospital for hearing impaired, and our farewell
dinner! I really do love China!
