China in Miniature

Although we once lived and worked in China for 3 years and have also visited Los Angeles many times, we have never been to Chinatown in LA. Until our recent visit, that is. Last week we hopped the Metro to Chinatown and had a good look around.

Even before you leave the Metro station (above), there are plenty of Chinese motifs. We liked the artwork “The Wheels of Change” below, which is by Chusien Chang and based on the I Ching (Book of Change).

The 3,000 year old Chinese classic describes 64 human situations. We were glad to see that one of these situations was “Travelling”.
