Chengdu, between tradition and modernity, is the only town which did'nt change of name since 2000 years. The Times of february 2007 gave it the name of " China of China"  
During this day, I had the opportunity to see an exhibition of photos, artistic shows ( dances, songs, theatre, acrobatics, shows of masks) with a great pleasure.  it was a first approach in the heart of the Sichuan province which also is the natural habitat of the giant panda. I brought you some photos and films that I let you discover below.
