Here’s a guy watching a BMW 5-series TV ad at the bus stop.

The park was quite beautiful considering its location in the middle of the city. It is new, having started in 1999. I made a major miscalculation not bringing binoculars as the birds were quite accessible and plentiful. Saw a couple of Grackle-like birds and of course, hordes of House Sparrows (these being the Eurasian variety.)

Many types of bamboo (love it, Dave) and Philodendron everywhere.

Left there and did a bit of cruising through the neighboorhoods which are quite a bit like Mexico aside from the signs in Mandarin. More pictures on that later.

Next stop – The Bund, Shinyang open market and Old Town.
