     Trip Story chengdu 2 A reader-digest-style story

     Most city people struggle in a love/hate relationship with the city we call it home nerve-racking traffic jam

    meets accelerative schedule monstrously growing city that is somehow still hard to find one's own hideout. Need take a deep breath You never know how much of the misty air inhaled is contained by exhaust gas... Are you truly living in a city and loving it Everyday Be proud you are one of the lucky few. Are you a Chengdu local sorry you are simply one of the millions.

     It is really refreshing for me to see how Chengdu locals take pride in their city believing in it as being

    "china's most livable city" yes it is not merely an assumption it has been reassured by UN with its HABITAT best practice awards for improving the living environment around Funan river.

     It all started in a very "reader's digest story" style in 1981 after one ay- long case study to Funan river

    city' mother river some primary school students sent a letter to the mayor appealing to monitor the pollution of the river and launching a campaign for keeping it clean. They received a hand-written letter from the mayor in

    reply and a decade long campaign launched right after. For the most part the project was conducted by

    volunteering local residents. Today's Funan River with clean water green lawns and open parks is acclaimed

    a green necklace around the neck of Chengdu. Areas along the river are the best place for an after-dinner walk or

    a morning jogging or having a cup of afternoon tea.

     I couldn't help thinking of those kids who wrote the letter when I was roaming along FUNAN RIVER. They should be at their 30's by now probably some of them were also strolling by me while their kids toddling around

     Like what you will see in Chengdu 2 Chengdu people learned to make peace with their own city. Not without struggles twists and turns. Making efforts to change what are hatable preserving what is lovable and

    taking full credit to enjoy it.

     More reflective thoughts Well see how individual voices asking for a change can turn into Maybe we

    all can stop complaining for a change and taking more ownership in the community and having more faith in individual input instead. Just TRY to toddle forward and embrace the city like as if it is "the most lovable" yes

    when it comes to the city we live it is very much a "love what you have" attitude we need foster and better off with...

     P.S. yes you can tell I really like Chengdu the city and the people. And have to admit I perhaps

    have read too much reader's digest and became a copycat of it hopelessly...
