Message for U.S. Citizens – Recommendation to Approach the Consulate from the West side of 14 Wei Road
On March 26, the building with the Bank of China branch directly across the Consulate began losing large sections of concrete from the façade, creating dangerous circumstances for pedestrians and vehicles below. All U.S. Consulate Shenyang personnel and visitors should take necessary precautions when accessing the Consulate, to include approaching the building from the west side of 14 Wei Road. The area directly below the falling debris has been blocked off with tape, but individuals should use caution as the items could present a danger further away from the building.

Flower & Fish Market in Shenyang
The Welcome to Shenyang blog has posted about various shops in Shenyang flower markets before.
About a year ago, we posted this about the wonderful flowers, plants, fish and other products. http://shenyangexpat.canalblog.com/archives/2014/02/23/29222310.html
Specifically, we love this little man's succulent shop on the 2nd floor with the plants. See this: http://shenyangexpat.canalblog.com/archives/2014/05/12/29612220.html
And a reader has just sent this to us as a great reminder. Thank you!!
Springtime is coming, we are all looking forward to seeing flowers outside. If you cannot wait, you can go to this fresh flower market in Shenyang. It is a flower wholesale market near Zhongshan park. (Not the same as Bei shi Chang.) This one is located in the 19th street. Very popular in Shenyang. A lot of choices ! Don't hesitate to bargain or ask a Chinese friend to buy at your place to get a cheaper price ! Name in Chinese : 富美莱花卉 Name in pinyin : fù měi lái huā huì
Le printemps arrive ! Nous avons tous envie de revoir des fleurs dans les parcs. Alors, si vous ne pouvez pas attendre, voici l'adresse d'un marché de gros spécialisé dans les fleurs coupées, bouquets en tout genre, orchidées, etc. .... Ca n'a rien à voir avec le marché aux plantes que tout le monde connaît : Bei shi chang. Celui ci est situé dans la rue 19, près du parc Zhongshan.
N'hésitez pas à négocier ou à demander à un ou une amie chinoise d'acheter à votre place pour avoir un meilleur prix.

A Question Remains about Horseback Riding
The Welcome to Shenyang blog has a question from a reader:
In 2011, one of our bloggers posted about horseback riding near New World Garden. Is this still possible? (once the weather clears of course) Have you participated in horseback riding in Shenyang, perhaps back in the fall 2014? Please share any solid information with us at email@example.com.
Thanks for helping another expat here in Shenyang!
