Looks like a temple.

I found a park with a temple in it.

And the temple had a door.

As well as these determined-looking chaps, gazing longlingly into the the bold future.

At the top of the hill, I found a guy having a nap on his back in a garden bed. With his feet in the air. It seemed a bit intrusive to take a picture of him and that was probably the right choice as when I walked back that way again, they were trying to revive him.

I thought this was like some sort of cat cafe but with fish. However, I’ve since learned that it is becoming popular around the world to have fish nibble your toes. Opinion seems to be that it’s not particularly hygienic.

Rather more fun were these chaps making interestingly shaped sugary treats.

I didn't have one of them, but this man sold me a mini watermelon.

I didn’t fancy fighting through all the kids for the sugar, but this man sold me a mini watermelon.

And then I moved on to the mighty Yangzi River.
