Hello and welcome to another edition of China Horizons, the weekly feature program brought to you by China Radio International. Im your host Du Lijun.

The Notes of the Peach Garden
More than 2,000 years ago Tao Yuanming, a famous Chinese poet of the Eastern Jin Dynasty, wrote the well known essay 'The Notes of the Peach Garden'. He describes a totally different world.

Never Too Old to Learn
With increased living standards in China, most old-aged citizens spend their free time exercising outdoors or looking after their grandchildren. But a group from the eastern city of Wuxi are denying convention by going back to school for English classes.

The 10th Shanghai International Arts Festival has opened in the east China city among much fanfare. For an entire month, the city's many venues will come alive with performances by celebrated art troupes and performers from around the world.
