Sunset Surprise in Northern Chengdu

Authors: Malcolm Phillips (China Daily)

For a short time a magical moment was created, reminding us that there is more to Chengdu City than Chunxi Road.
Here in the North of the city I see daily changes and development. The once forgotten corner of the city is now on the move. We will soon have IKEA and then later in the year the Metro. No longer will the North and its pandas be isolated from the rest of the city. Chengdu is dynamic and its constant growth and change is something to behold. Living here I witness the changes and growth; to travel into the city is a journey through a landscape of dynamism, alteration and continuous building. During my first year in Chengdu I feel I have just begun to scratch the surface and I am anxious and driven to see more.
But back to where I began this story, that night watching the sunset over this dynamic, growing and ever more cosmopolitan city. Up here on the hill, joined by my neighbours, I marvelled at the natural spectacle in front of us. For a short time a magical moment was created, reminding us that there is more to Chengdu City than Chunxi Road.
