When I told someone Chengdu is a hot city, I meant both food and the city itself. Hopefully, I finally remembered that I forgot
procrastinated to post my photos I took when I travelled to Chengdu and stayed for a few days this winter. Still, these pictures are taken from my old Canon 50D DSLR and the mediocre lens.
A photo of the Yodo-gawa (淀川) from the skyscrapers with the old DSLR Canon 50D. Juusou-suji (十三筋) and Hankyu railways are visible in this picture.
