More tour pictures

I thought I would add a bunch of pictures from around Dalian. Enjoy!

This is a picture of some billboards in an area of Dalian called Peace Modern Town (hehe) which is a shopping area and has a really nice shopping mall. Cities here are divided into districts which are then divided up into residential areas, commercial areas, etc... and are given some name such as this-or-that town or this-and-that square. I am not sure what the name of this area is in Chinese, but it was translated into Peace Modern Town (hahaha... sorry, this name makes me laugh. Hehe).

This is a statue at Rhyme of the Sea Square. At first, I thought it was dragons, but they are really waves with seagulls.

Here's a man-made waterfall at Rhyme of the Sea Square.

Here's a great big turtle statue at Rhyme of the Sea Square.

Along the road leaving Rhyme of the Sea Square are these huge statues of aquatic life...

... and death.

A closer view of the tiger statue at Tiger beach that was in the previous post.

Here are some horsey rides for the kids you can rent.

There's not much of a beach here at Tiger Beach since there isn't much sand. You can take a sightseeing trip aboard a boat, but it was a bit hazy this day.
