Chinese Creativity... Part 3

Dear All,

Unfortunately I do not have time to write any new blog entry this week, as my family from The Netherlands is currently visiting me in Hong Kong. (And of course you understand that after I haven't seen them for quite a while, it is very nice to spend some time with them).

But, I wouldn't want to keep it all quiet here, so take a look at the picture below. I found it when I was hiking in Zhangjiajie last year. Zhangjiajie is a beautiful mountain area in the northwestern part of the Hunan province in China. The unique characteristics of this place inspired the makers of the movie Avatar. (Remember the floating rocks in that movie? Well thost rocks you will find there in ZhangJiaJie, but of course not floating around). I will write about that place when I have some more time.

Anyway, I was walking through a park there, and found this sign:

Obviously somebody has done a creative translation of "Please don't walk on the grass".


  1. When I read the beginning of the blog and saw that there was a sign on the picture I rememberd seeing these kind of signs in Beijing aswell, especially around the Olympic stadions. We took pictures aswell, will try to find them and send them! :) Enjoy your family time!

  2. Hi Marianne,

    Thanks! Sure, I'd be happy to post any interesting pics here, so don't hesitate to send them :-)
