Day 65 - Chengdu

Deefor ducked out of the tour to see the Pandas. Instead he, Toni and Iain went for a wander.

First the Metro. They are building five lines though only two are finished so far. Dead easy to use. Signs in English, destinations picked out in LEDs in the carriages, clean and cheap.

Then tea in the Ming Teahouse and a visit to Wide and Narrow Alleys for some high-end tourist shopping and lunch (including gelato).

A visit to the Taoist Temple in the afternoon ("The Tao that can be explained is not the true Tao") and then home.

After all that sightseeing and culture - Pizza for dinner. Great!
