We decided to spend our last free Saturday with Dr. Rodriguez downtown at Chunxi Road. Ever since our first taste of inner Chengdu, we have been wanting to visit the Dali & Picasso exhibit. So we decided to make a day of it! We started off by grabbing boba at Gong Cha to help cool us off, as cool drinks are very scarce in Chengdu. Then, to heat us back up we made our way to some delicious vegan hot pot! As we chose our ingredients, the waitress looked at us in shock of how much food we were ordering. To her surprise, we ate most of it-- from tofu to lotus root to pumpkin. Yummy!
After lunch, we went to the exhibit. We wandered from piece to piece in awe of all of the stunning artwork these two talented men had created through so many different mediums-- paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and even films. After the exhibit, we treated ourselves to a luxury cup of Starbucks coffee and chatted. Once we finished, we visited the mall for a second and headed home! We were so happy to have such a fun day with Dr. Rodriguez!
