I unexpectedly have seen: stilettos, mini skirts, dyed hair, skateboards, roller blades, huge-ass bees, ballroom dancing in parks, and fluffy, fluffy dogs. I have seen three in the week I’ve been here in Chengdu, and I have stopped to pet all of them. They appear to be the biggest dogs on the block, and are ridiculously calm when squealing foreign girls give them a good ruffle.
