Next on the agenda was a visit to the 2011 International Horticulture Festival, which Xi'an is currently hosting. In order to facilitate this, they have created a gigantic landscape which seemed more like an unfinished Themepark. There are countless gardens and huge lakes with boats, lights and fountains. In the various buildings they displayed many flowers like Golden and Rainbow color roses (which were developed by a Dutch company!). They also took the opportunity to display some of China's rarest animals, including some Great White Panda's and Golden Monkey's
Alright, another day covered, but I'm still 4 behind! I'll try to cover two or three more tomorrow :) Right now we are getting ready to go out. My cousin Rob suggested us to go to Club Beijing in Hong Kong, so that is exactly what we will do! I'll tell you all about it soon, I'm sure.
All the best,
