Chengdu is great
I like this city. Everything is going well, even though we've had to revise some of our travel plans. Apparently everyone and their grandmother wants to go to Lanzho right now. As a result, we're heading to Xi'an after Chengdu, in a few days. That's just fine, though. Our hostel is run by a group of artists. They bought this old factory building and converted it. They have a studio in the building, and there's a restaurant and a cafe, and even a pool table. The TexMex restaurant was amazing and surreal. Today we're going to Du Fu's cottage and the historical park related to Tang Dynasty poets.
