Kunming and Its Nature -- Part 2

Kunming, September 14 2010

According to Mel, a guy we met at Cuihu suggested us to visit Garden Expo. The guy wrote the name of the place on a piece of paper. We showed that piece of paper to the taxi driver which happened to be waiting in front of Cuihu.

Since there were 8 of us, we needed 2 taxis, but there was only one. It took quite a while until we got another taxi. There were taxis frequently passing by, but most of them were occupied. Our taxi driver, a woman, was kind and helpful. She took the trouble to get off her cab, stand by the street, call a taxi, and explain our destination to the other taxi driver.

The area was very vast. But the flowers were, I have to say, ordinary. Yes, they were beautiful. Flowers are always beautiful. Even carrion flower is beautiful. But compared with Dalat City Flower Garden I visited last year in Vietnam, the species of the flowers here were just ordinary ones.

Cheerful color combination of flowers.

 If only the sky was blue...

A ship of flowers.

When I was a kid, I had a story book "The Three Little Pigs". This one should be "The Three Little Elephants".

"No Shinny Please".
I'm still guessing what does this mean.
