Du Fu's Cottage

Haven't had a chance to post much lately, as I've been touring through Sichuan Province over here in China.  I did get a chance to visit the former home of Tang Dynasty poet, Du Fu (a.k.a. Tu Fu) in Chengdu, and thought I'd share some pics.  He lived here for about five years.  Beautiful grounds, with lots of statues, quaint gardens, and multiple language translations of his poems on display.  One highlight:  the Hall of Odes, containing statues of Du Fu and other famous Chinese poets, like his buddy, Li Bai (Li Po).
