The "Sea of Stars" square in Dalian

   This is the "Sea of Stars" square in the center of Dalian city, Northeast China. Built in 1997, it is the biggest square in Asia. Look at it: the people are so small, like ants, in comparison with this big circle. In the center of the circle there is a red stone carving of the 28 su lunar constellations, the 10 heavenly stems and the 12 branches. In the morning thousands of people go there to practice qigong and tai chi. And in the evening, when it's dark, thousands of lights make it look like a luminous star. And if you walk there, you have a feeling you are part of this universe, as if you are also a star.
