To round off our week off for the Lunar New Year we took a trip down to the water park and the TV tower. The water park is a massive man made lake with some impressive, but new bridges that look like traditional Chinese/Japanese bridges. The whole thing was built because of Tianjin being an Olympic city. What? You missed that? Tianjin hosted some of the Olympic football and so therefore to be an Olympic city!
The water park is also home to the world's least impressive fun-fair. I am not even slightly sure that I trust Chinese built and maintained roller-coasters even if they were working (Which they weren't!).
The TV tower has one of those revolving restaurant things at the top with eye watering prices: 11 pounds 80 for a coffee!!!! Needless to say I kept my money firmly in my pocket.
However, it is the views from the top of picturesque Tianjin that you are really after...
This one is included because you can see our apartment on it! Just right of centre is a weird light brown building with two little turret things and we are behind and to the right of that... So now you know!
Finally, is a picture of Lizzy and Fraser looking towards the tower. However, the interesting bit is.... Look at the towers on the right, they are vertical. The horizon is horizontal. Now look at the tower... Not completely vertical. It must be an illusion as I am (reasonably) sure
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
