I wish he would use more eloquent language, but you get the idea - the garden was really beautiful and it was a wonderful experience. Though he resisted going, he loved it. I am sorry that many of the paths were closed the day of our visit - but what we saw was really moving and spectacular. So great to see the juxtaposition of the tall buildings behind and the oasis within.

The landscapes and the buildings were classic.

There was an exhibit of wooden buildings and the joinery used to assemble the buildings. Really impressive, even for the layman.

There was also a temporary exhibit of watercolors by a woman who has spent a lot of time in some Buddha caves in the northwest of China - they are really impressive and beautiful. She has done some really exceptional work.

A few steps from the mtr station; there are those beautifull gardens; that are connected to a monastery up stairs. The expeience there is perfect with the wonderful sounds that are heard around.
