"There are many parks in Chengdu, and I especially like to take a walk on weekends." In Jin Daiyu's view, the traffic in Chengdu is very convenient.

"The world of shadow play is colorful. I like these shadow plays very much. They look quaint but bright and gorgeous, with local characteristics." She said that she had also made a special trip to Chengdu Shadow Play Art Museum in Dujiangyan City to visit Zhao Hong, an expert of Chengdu Shadow Play, and learn the knowledge of shadow play.

"I hope my shadow play can combine the art of Chinese culture and Italian art well, so I use some Italian favorite colors and patterns, such as flowers and bees, in the choice of colors." She said.

With the increasing charm and temperament of Chengdu, more and more foreigners like Jin Daiyu and Francesca come to Chengdu to study and work.
