Talking Night of chengdu, the Garden of Eden in the East

chengdu, the fourth central city of Chinese hinterland, is the most leisurely and carefree city of China. Some scholars say chengdu is the location of Garden of Eden described in the Bible.

Your arrival is welcome.
There are the consulates of the US., German, France, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Pakistan etc.

when Marco Polo came chengdu in 1200's, he wrote
"This city( chengdu) was in former days a rich and noble one, and the Kings who reigned there were very great and wealthy. It is a good twenty miles in compass, ...
Through the midst of this great city runs a large river, in which they catch a great quantity of fish. It is a good half mile wide, and very deep withal, ... The multitude of vessels that navigate this river is so vast, that no one who should read or hear the tale would believe it. The quantities of merchandize also which merchants carry up and down this river are past all belief. In fact, it is so big, that it seems to be a Sea rather than a River!"

Awesome! This brings back many memories of when I visited Chengdu in May.
