Back in 2004 or 2005, my husband and I traveled to Chengdu, Sichuan, China for business on his part. I tagged along, OF COURSE. There are a number of wonderful things in Chengdu, outside of the people, who are some of the nicest in the world. There’s the Panda Sanctuary, a testament to China’s love and care for this native mammal of theirs. There’s the Moon Bear Sanctuary run by Jill Robinson of Animals Asia (www.animalsasia.org). There’s great food, fun bars, a fab souvenir street, and a nice downtown.
There’s also a museum of history and heritage. Which is where I went one day while the husband was out making money. I don’t know if I’ve already blogged about this past life but I got the distinct feeling while meandering about the museum (all captions in Chinese so I had to guess at a lot of things) that I was looking at costumes I’d worn, farm implements I’d wielded, and scenery I’d lived in. I later did some past life readings for myself and found that it was true. It was a strange and wonderful feeling to be walking sort of in my own ancient footsteps again!
Some pictures from that visit follow.
