Wonderful Sightseeing in the Capital of Shu

0406-WonderfulSightseeing01
This is the cover of a divinely old-fashioned set of postcards from Green Ram Temple 青羊宫. As xkcd pointed out, if you really hate someone, teach them to recognize bad kerning.

0408-KatSanxingdui01-2
Sanxingdui museum was a great place to make sketches.

0429-Picasso01
The well-traveled Picasso show finally hit Chengdu (or rather, the ghostly suburban hi-tech park). The 'forty masterpieces' were largely from the B-team. A friend of mine speculated that the pictures were probably fakes – otherwise how could the security be so low? No metal detectors, no bag search, no guards... Interesting idea.

0402-TurtlesReleaseStation01
Almost half of Wenshu Monastery is occupied by a lush park where people can release their turtles in a specially designated place. One turtle equals one hundred points of good karma.

0503-ChuanChuan01
Characters for 'skewers' 串串 are smartly embedded in the window frames.

0404-MrTang01
Who doesn't want a professional in the mouth?

0424-Jubilee01
Speaking of erotic connotations, here's how our campus celebrated the anniversary of the Communist Youth League. But why are so many colorful penii flying toward the bright future?

0404-MrTang3-Caesarean01
Is this that shady place where they steal your organs? Or your baby?

0407-Fondue01
The makers of Chengdu Hotpot invented a useful Russian word.

0415-Peterburg01
Toward the end of the word 'Petersburg' the bar ran out of Cyrillic letters.

0502-Fur01
Meanwhile, the shop called Fцг had them in abundance. Is this supposed to be Fur? Only the man on the left knows, because he is The One.

0412-ArmyDolls01
Army surplus fabrics found their way into a kindergarten and turned into creepy stuffed puppets.

0416-MorbidiMomenti01
The actual morbidi momenti follows.

0414-Poultry01


0505-MetroGirl01
Chengdu people often demonstrate a remarkable sense of style.

0427-Prich01
It's because they get to shop at Prich.

0429-ColdCake01
This is a food blog, after all, so here's the most repulsive-looking desert among my Chengdu favorites. 'Cold cake' 凉糕 is bean jello with burned caramel syrup. Delicious!
