"On a trip to China two years ago, I stumbled across a wonderful chrysanthemum festival in a Shanghai park. There were giant sculptures of birds, elephants, a peacock and people, all totally covered with chrysanthemums in different colors, sizes and stages of bloom. This oversized chair was part of a living room set of two chairs and a gigantic sofa.
The park was full of people practicing tai chi and ballroom dancing, retired people strolling around, a group of people singing revolutionary songs, toddlers with their grandmothers and men with their pet birds. What fun!"
