Xichang, Sichuan, China (May 17, 2019)
Xichang is a picturesque destination in southern Sichuan offering warm winters, cooler summers and plenty of sunshine. Its weather made it ideal to be selected as the launch base for the Chinese space satellite program - apparently one is to be launched tonight sometime. The magnificent Qionghai Lake is situated near the city center, surrounded by beautiful mountains for hiking. Despite its small size, Xichang houses a community of westerners, who have moved here for high quality of life and good weather. We are staying at the hotel right on Qionghai Lake. The main thoroughfare through town is adorned with bougainvillea with deep purple and red flowers mounted on hundreds of concrete trellis along both sides of the main street.
