Chengdu has so much to offer – lovely teahouses, delicious Szechuan food, pandas, and close proximity to mountains and to Tibet.  Compared to other Chinese cities of its size (16 million), it has a relatively low carbon footprint.  But it is also an inland, landlocked city.  Economic development is more of a struggle, and pollution is made worse by its geography.  We had to laugh when someone in the States asked if we’d seen the solar eclipse….
