Final of Fengdu, China

In an earlier post I commented on the neat flower displays that didn’t seem to get vandalized. However, Fengdu was generally dirty and scruffy. The incense container being used as an ashtray (below) is in contrast to those I saw in other sacred sites. And Chinese people smoke a lot.

I thought these were rather cute and considered buying one for my 5 year old granddaughter, but didn't think they would make it home undamaged.

The English in this one is right, for a change!
