It’s been a while since we went to the 798 Art Dis­trict in Bei­jing. It’s one of my favourite places to walk around in sum­mer, but wasn’t so good today with tem­per­a­ture around freez­ing. We decided not to stay too long, but a must see for Tanya is always the red dinosaurs in cages. Many of the gal­leries were chang­ing exhi­bi­tions so there wasn’t too much inter­est­ing to see. But I did dis­cover a 1974 sculp­ture by Sal­vador Dali, called Ele­fante Cos­mico, which I had never seen before.
