|Pardon my French but I am merely quoting the sign on the building.|
On Monday, after weeks of trying to actually organize my schedule and the weather, I finally went with Helen (from the Ukraine) to Nanhai Park in Baotou. (Professional Photos and Info at China PicturesPub.com)
We had an exhausting morning and true to my regular form, I got us lost on the way back to our next photoshoot, but that story is for another day.
Recently, right beside that beautiful building you see above, an 'under construction' site was completed. What is was going to be was anyone's guess (applicable only to those like myself who can't actually read Chinese), but Sunday night I went past it in the dark and finally saw it in all it's completed glory. Unfortunately, these photos were taken in the day time.

Helen and I traveled from "Dong He" wherein is situated Nanhai park, to Qingshan where this new site has been established. Looking at the photo you can understand why it was that I couldn't figure out what it was supposed to be other than some sort of sculpture.
|Great Water Feature and lots of fun for the locals|
But as you can see, it is actually a fountain or water feature. At night it is really impressive because it is lined with multicolored lights.

Standing in the location shown above, I took this photo of the roundabout and the building diagonally opposite.
|You forgot to turn the tap off again didn't you?|
Yes you can walk right to the top of this thing, and many people did just that. When I finally get around to writing about my outing at Nanhai, I will provide some more photographs that show the full extent of this water feature.
