Shanghai Century Park (10/5/2011)

Wednesday, October 5, 2011
We still have a day off for the National Holiday. Headed to Century Park.
At Century Square at the end of Century Avenue, there is the Oriental Art Center:
a concert hall reported to be in the shape of a butterfly orchid.
Century Square is dominated by the steel sculpture called "Oriental Light:"
The sculpture resembles a sundial.
We had lunch at the Hofbraeuhaus:
