cool off in the summer

I sat at the fountain and cooled off my feet with the locals. It was a great spot to take a break and rest while people watching.

A green little paradise in a modern city which sometimes lacks of green. Nice fountain in a even nicer garden. Take a look if you can!

We noticed at the entrance of the park and walked over to it. It is a beautiful structure. The surrounding area is very pleasant and serene.

-- the gushing water and air-borne cooling water droplets was a great relief in the summer heat. So, I dropped by at every chance I could during our visit.
