What's on Chengdu July 8 - 10
If you have any interest in history or photography I highly recommend to check out the exhibition of Li Zhensheng which shows glimpses of the madness during the Cultural revolution. I've seen the pictures before many times and you can check them out on his website, but seeing them in big prints is another surreal experience again.
Also if you like 2step/garage & grime DJ Royal T has a nice selection that is unheard of in Chengdu.
I have some question :
- Do you have The Dream Guest House, Heishui contact information? please let me know.
- I'll take a bus from chengdu to heishui county, when the bus arrive at heishui bus station, is there a bus to go to Dagu Glacier? and back to heishui? do you have bus schedule?
- is there a bus from heishui to maoxian? what time for the schedule?
Thank you very much.

There are 12
"high-speed" trains daily leaving from the East and South Train Station and from Shuangliu Airport station for E'mei. They take about 1.5 hours. Tickets are RMB65-78. From the station you can take a taxi
Alternatively you could take a bus from Xinnanmen Station or more frequently from Shiyang Station in the South (every half hour or so).
Old man dunks babies in water for "early childhood education"
this is crazy! the kids can learn to swim but not like that, he is putting them the wrong way in the water!!! pretty much sure those kids will end up with some phobia towards water!
Plus the parents giving up their kids for 6 years it's so illogical and absurd!
Chengdu Publishes New Birdwatching Guide
As a bird watcher, you must get up as early as possible. I remember 10 years ago I worked in Beijing as a tour guide ,and I happened to take 2 people to the Summer Palace for the birdwatching. We went there 04:am in the morning when most birds were still sleeping:)
Donuts, donuts, donuts: Where to get them in Chengdu
Johnny 5's Donuts is the solution to all of your donut woes.
When I was a teenager I could eat 7 donuts in about 20 minutes.
After going to Johnny 5's donuts, I felt like a teenager all over again.
I am a big fan of Dunkin' Donuts back in the states.
Johnny's donuts are better. Raspberry cream filled donut: 10/10-the best raspberry cream filled donut I have ever had.
Boston Cream: 9 out of 10 stars.
Glazed: 9.5 out of 10 stars.
Johnny is a Donut Da Vinci.
The donuts are a work of art, fresh, and remind you of why there is an obesity epidemic in America.
There is not a hint of that gross-fake-sugar-or-is-it-gutter-oil-Chinese-bakery taste.
This is now (along with Rumba and Mike's) one of my favorite places to go in Chengdu.
If Johnny were a jerk, I would still keep coming back to this place just for donuts, but Johnny is more friendly than Mr. Rogers and makes one of the best donuts I have ever eaten.
