Chinese Rose Park

sunny 20 °F

There wasn't a lot to say about this park, other than it had a TON of roses. If that's your thing, you know where to go, next time you're in China. It was just the right time of year, so the whole garden was bursting with bright colours. My knee wasn't doing so well, so I tried to take it easy that day. It never goes that way though. There's always way more walking than you think you will do. I didn't get a very good sleep the night before, and I tried to find a nice place to take a nap, but there was blaring techno music and families setting up tents and running around with kites everywhere. It wasn't easy to find a spot. I ended up finding one unoccupied bench in the whole park and just laying down on it for a while, but it was a little too cool for that, so I left before I managed to take a nap.

The whole garden is built on the remains of a brick factory. They kept some of the original kiln.

For dinner, I went to a nice Japanese place across the street. All this curry, foie gras, and sushi for 82 yuan (15.62 CAD). Lots of restaurants have these notebooks that they leave on the table with markers, so people can draw in them and leave little messages for the next customers.

I love the all the roses! You are about 1 month ahead of us in weather. Our roses won't be out for another month.
