Yifan lives in Chengdu, in the Sichuan Province. The climate is moist, and it often rains. Winter is not too cold, summer is not hot, and the trees are green all year long. Many giant panda can be found there, too. At home, Yifan mostly speaks Mandarin, and she is learning English, which she practices with her mother. She also likes to play hide-and-seek, read books, and draw. Yifan thinks the most beautiful place in her city is South Lake Park because it is full of flowers, and the building there is very beautiful. If someone came to visit Yifan who had never been to China, she would be sure to serve them hot and sour soup dumplings!
