On March 10, my mom, my brother, and I went to the Lan Su Chinese Gardens in Portland, Oregon. The garden has more than 300 plant species. I was able to get some nice pictures of the plants. Even though it is located in the city, it is very peaceful and relaxing. You don’t even notice the traffic and noise outside. It’s as if they have soundproof walls. My favorite part was going to the Tower of Cosmic Reflections, also known as the Teahouse. At the Tower, I had two dumplings, some horsebeans, or roasted fava beans. I also had some great-tasting tea. I would recommend visiting it if you are ever in Portland.
