Nanchang City, Fuzhou City, and Xiamen City had no exciting pictures. If you are wonder how I am keeping track, they have wooden signs like above describing the gardens.

The pool where they had a cool water mist fountain. It was nice and cool on a hot day.
Dinosaur park, with moving heads and cheezy recorded sound effects.

At this point, my camera ran out of power. So as a FYI, the Canon S400 camera can take about 96 pictures without flash on one recharge before the battery dies. The specs seem to indicate I should have gotten closer to 200 but maybe the life of this battery starting to bite it.
